Wessex iPhone App

11:27am 13th September 2012

The Hat Festival will lift its brim in Bridport this weekend.

The 2012 event opens with hat-loving Hank Wangford and his band on Firday evening, then Saturday's 'must-do' event is the mass hat-wearing, when thousands gather in Buckydoo Square - with prizes for the most unusual hats and a celebratory street-wide photoshoot at 1pm.

Sunday wraps up the party with the Mad Hatter's Tea Dance.

Further fun includes a plethora of hat stalls, experts and makers, psychic hat readings, themed buffets, a cabaret and disco, bands, a hat exhibition at the local museum and an interactive hatting-up display for adults, while for children there are hat workshops and an open-air cinema.

Two charities will be supported by Bridport Hat festival this year - Brain Tumour Research and Whizz-Kidz.
