“the wonderful Winchester Hat Fair, a joyous weekend of street theatre and outdoor performance”
The Guardian, 2015

Hat Fair is the UK’s longest continually running festival of Outdoor Arts.

The festival takes place every year during the first weekend of July across the historic city of Winchester.

There’s something for everyone to enjoy at each year’s festival, and best of all, it’s absolutely FREE to attend!

Friday & Saturday
– Two jam-packed dates of arts and culture all around Winchester city centre.

– All-day family picnic at North Walls Recreation Ground, with some of the world’s most spectacular street performers.
