Be part of the team that makes the UK’s longest continually running festival of Outdoor Arts come to life. This year's Hat Fair festival runs over the 2nd-4th July 2021. Each year we need lots of volunteers to help keep our audiences smiling and our events running smoothly.
With so many aspects covered within the creating of such a huge festival, we need enthusiastic people for various roles from site production to information point representatives, from Green Room assistants, to event stewards. Everybody has a part they can play in making this Hat Fair the best one yet, and all will be placed in the heart Winchester and the action!
Due to the ongoing pandemic this year's festival will be a little different from past Hat Fairs; the whole festival will take place at North Walls Recreation Ground, be ticketed, and have a limited capacity. This will definitely add to Hat Fair 2021's uniqueness.
