Winchester Hat Fair takes place this weekend.

It is the UK’s longest running festival of outdoor arts.

Founded in 1974 by Jonathan Kay, Hat Fair inspires and is inspired by the people, heritage and public spaces within the city of Winchester.

Initially conceived as a busking festival, the event takes its name from the tradition of the audience putting money in the hat at the end of the show.
