Festival Place hosted the sustainable fashion ‘we are.’ pop-up from April 6th – 9th. The initiative’s approach to shopping is to provide pre-loved clothing at rock-bottom prices. The vintage fashion pop-ups, which can be found across the UK, offer thousands of high-quality designer pieces from big brand names, such as Nike, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Carhartt. These pieces are typically end-of-line items or have been gently worn, and otherwise might have ended up in landfills.

Neil Churchill, Centre Director at Festival Place, said: “At Festival Place, we’re committed to promoting sustainability by embracing initiatives that address the environmental challenges we face. ‘we are.’ is leading the way in reshaping the fashion industry towards a sustainable future, and we were honoured to host a fashion brand that aligns with our own values and ethos.”

Having launched in October 2002, Festival Place was acquired by AEW in 2015 and is the highest ranked shopping centre outside a major UK city. It is listed in the top 25 of the latest Global Data’s UK shopping centres report and sits within Trevor Wood Associates’ Premier League of shopping centres. The 1.1 million sq. ft retail and leisure destination features retail, dining and leisure brands such as Apple, H&M, M&S, Next, Waterstones and Five Guys alongside amenities including a Sports Centre with swimming pool and gym, a 10-screen Vue Cinema, a Flip Out trampoline park, Escape Hunt and indoor entertainment experience plus office space and a library.

Joint agents for Festival Place are Lunson Mitchenall and Cushman & Wakefield. CBRE is the managing agent for the centre.
