Head To The Winchester Hat Fair This Summer

Matt Crisp May 17, 2017

If you are looking for luxury minibus hire for your workplace summer outing, then consider a trip to the Winchester Hat Fair.

Taking place since 1974, this outdoor theatre, music and dance festival has been growing for a number of years and is now the longest running in the UK. Starting out as a busker’s festival, this is now an all-singing, all-dancing city-wide celebration of street performance, from the traditional to the Avant Gard.

The festival takes place from 30 June – 2 July and a significant chunk of the line-up has already been revealed. It takes place across the medieval city, in a wide range of locations. You can see air acrobatics in the cathedral grounds, or head to a family picnic on the Sunday in Oram’s Arbour to see 20 different performances throughout the day.

This year the festival has the theme The Art Of The Unexpected, and you can find out more about it on the website.

If you want to make a special day of it check out the various restaurants and tea rooms in Winchester to wow your guests or colleagues.

Head to Hotel Du Vin for a special treat, try the champagne afternoon teas for a memorable experience. If you want to head out of the city head to Lainston House for an afternoon tea you will never forget, seated in the hotel’s recently redeveloped kitchen garden.

For something a little closer to home, head to Maison Blanc or one of the independent café’s surrounding the Cathedral grounds.
