Join in with Hat Fair

We're are delighted to announce the following opportunities for you to play your part in some of the performances at this year’s Hat Fair! 

Theatre Témoin - FLOOD

Tuesday 7 June | 5pm-6.15pm | Theatre Royal Winchester

The Climate Crisis is personal…

Playmakers and Theatre Témoin would like to welcome volunteers to Theatre Royal Winchester to join us for a collaborative and mindful workshop exploring the world of FLOOD - a new, interactive outdoor spectacle, highlighting the health of the world’s ocean through the eyes of Britain’s communities. It will be performed at Hat Fair 2022.

In this workshop, we will explore the impact of climate change on our coastlines and communities through a series of conversational and creative exercises. We will reflect on our relationship with the sea by refreshing our senses and engaging in playful discussion. Local voices are important to FLOOD so we will be recording some of the work we do together to inform the sound design for the show. Let your voice be heard!

Attendees will receive a complimentary ticket to that evening’s performance of mapdance 2022 which will begin at 7pm.
