Britain's longest-running festival of street theatre, held in Winchester city centre, is outlandish, entertaining and innovative. Spectators are asked to delve into their pockets to fill the eponymous hats that are passed around by the performers at Winchester Hat Fair.
The festival offers a vibrant mix of oddball characters, stunts, specialist circus, clowning, new world music and workshops for kids. Every year approximately 50,000 people fill the streets of the town to join in the fun.
