Hat Fair looking for market traders for festival weekend

The organisers of Hat Fair, the UK’s longest running festival of Outdoor Arts, are looking for market traders for the festival weekend.

The festival, which takes place throughout the streets and green spaces of Winchester over the first weekend of July, will have pitches available for traders on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July.

Market traders will have the opportunity to engage with hundreds of people visiting the city over the weekend, coming to enjoy the circus, magic, comedy, song, dance and more.

The markets are an integral part of the festival and the organisers are looking for craft, retail, charity, food, coffee and ice cream stalls to compliment the joyful atmosphere of the festival.

The organisers will match each stall with a suitable location in the city centre and audience.

The application process is now open, places are limited so be sure to get your application in early. Preference will be given to local businesses.

Please visit www.hatfair.co.uk/info/traders for more information and a link to the application form. The closing date for applications is Friday 5 April 2024.

Hat Fair is run by the arts and education charity, Play to the Crowd, which also runs Theatre Royal Winchester and Playmakers creative learning and community engagement.

This year Hat Fair runs from Friday 5 – Sunday 7 July 2024.
