Top Hat returning for 2022!

Playmakers’ Top Hat Competition returns for 2022 and we are looking for current undergraduates and recent graduates from University of Winchester to apply to take part and perform at Hat Fair 2022 in Winchester.

Hat Fair, also run by Play to the Crowd, is the UK’s longest running festival of Outdoor Arts, taking place on the first weekend of July across Winchester and attracting audiences of over 53,000 to experience the best outdoor performance from local, national and international artists.
