Fringe callout 2016

Hat Fair Fringe 2016

Hat Fair Fringe Festival is back!

Applications now sought from Student & Graduate performers.

After a successful first run last year, the Hat Fair Fringe Festival will be making a triumphant return at Hat Fair 2016 in July!

We are calling all students and recent graduate performers from Winchester and Southampton Universities to apply for a performance slot at the Fringe, which will be held at The Brooks Shopping Centre on 1 – 2 July.

This will be a great opportunity to have your work performed as part of Hat Fair and meet and interact with other performers in the area.

You will receive a small bursary to support production costs and have the opportunity to participate in free daily professional development workshops.

In order to be eligible you and all members of your company must be available to perform a show of up to 30 minutes in length, or a 10 – 20 minute walkabout act, to a public audience on 1 – 2 July.

If selected, Fringe participants will be responsible for their own travel and accommodation in Winchester and be willing to participate in Hat Fair’s Morning Clubbing (9am – 10am at The Brooks Shopping on 1 – 2 July).

To register your interest, please email the Fringe producers, Suzu Hiroyama and Bea Cathro-Wears, at and include:
– photos/videos of your performance piece
– a short summary of what your performance will be about (maximum 300 words)
– contact phone number

Closing date: Tuesday 14 June at 12 noon
