Summer is well and truly here, and at Fareham Shopping Centre, there is something for everyone in the Summer of Fun! 

Throughout the summer holidays, Fareham Shopping Centre are hosting various events and activities to keep the little ones entertained. Commencing on 29th July, the events will take place for five consecutive Saturdays, bringing film favourites such as The Little Mermaid and Spiderman to Osborn Square.

Experience the charm of a Little Mermaid experience as shoppers are welcomed by the stunning Ariel herself. Prepare to be immersed in an under the sea workshop, where young ones can let loose their creativity!

In the second week of the Summer of Fun, the beloved superhero Spiderman will swing into action at the Centre! Witness Spiderman showcase his amazing spidey-skills and how he utilises them, with appearances throughout the day. Children will also have the opportunity to become superheroes themselves through the exciting face painting workshop, hosted alongside.

Week three brings the iconic Barbie to life in Osborn Square, coinciding with the release of the new Barbie The Movie. Shoppers can step into Fareham’s larger-than-life Barbie Box and strike a pose – just like Barbie herself!

Prepare for an action-packed week four, with the Ninja Turtles visiting Fareham Shopping Centre. These crime-fighting heroes, trained in the art of ninjutsu, will roam the Centre, providing the perfect opportunity to grab a selfie with them!

In the final week of the Summer of Fun, Osborn Square will come alive with life-sized teddy bears, inviting shoppers to join Fareham’s Teddy Bear’s Day Out. Additionally, Goldilocks will make an appearance to host a captivating storytelling workshop for all to enjoy.


All these incredible events are completely free to attend and take place from 11am to 3pm, each week. Shoppers will receive a stamp for each event attended, and upon collecting all five stamps, they can enter a ballot box for a chance to win a delightful summer-themed hamper! What’s more to love, if shoppers have the Summer of Fun booklet, they are also entitled to 10% off a dessert at Utopia!
