A giant party for the townspeople in honor of the end of the summer, a display of fashion trends and their antipodes, a competition of charity organizations, a competition of designers. All this is fully applicable to the description of the Festival Hats, which takes place in Bridport, Dorset, for the eighth time. Here you will not meet caps or panamas - only incredibly elaborate products, as if the imagination of their creators has finally broken free.
Some items on the heads of the festival participants are not hats. Rather, designer hats, whose purpose - to surprise and delight. The overwhelming majority of the participants are not young and they strive not so much to impress the audience as to embody a certain symbolic image, to convey a hidden thought. And here personal qualities are revealed to the full extent: why are you embarrassed to show the whole year, you can safely realize it during the festival of hats.
The festival does not have a central event, a rod, it all consists of various kinds of importance and interesting stages. Here and the competition for the most stupid design, and hat competitions for dogs, and quizzes, and musical numbers.
