Last year , something very strange happened here in Dorset, Snooks the Hat shop in Bridport Organised a Hat festival , A first for the Town , The first inkling that this was going on was when we started getting bookings for the three days that the festival was going on then , we were turning people away as the date aproached.
The actual event was amazing everyone seemed to be wearing a hat , there were Workshops and classes being organised all over Bridport, Masses of people descended on the small Dorset Market town to take part.
It is being oranised again this year on 16/17/18 September , it is not to be missed if you are close by.
