RALLY No XX Thursday 29th June - Monday 3th July 2023

Winchester Hat Fair

Holiday Rally

The Site:  Winchester Rugby Football Club, North Walls Park, Hillier Way, Winchester.

The Winchester Hat Fair is the UK's longest running festival of Street Theatre, comedy, and music. It is held in Winchester over the weekend and pre-covid the streets were filled with performers of every kind with a hat out for your silver coins. In 2021 this was a ticketed event held in the North Walls Recreation Ground which is adjacent to the rally. In 2022 it is hoped that Covid restrictions will be eased enough for the return to the streets but it was still a good event and very entertaining.   

Our host, Jim Yeoman, may also put on a a Friday curry for us and Sunday Breakfast. Please indicate if interested on the form.
