This year’s festival will take a different format to previous years.   All three days of this year’s event will take place at North Walls Recreation Ground, it will be socially distanced and ticketed.  This allows the team to manage the audience numbers and adapt should any further Covid restrictions be brought in, or the date of full restrictions being lifted is pushed back.   By limiting the numbers able to attend and keeping socially distanced measures in place, they also hope this will give audiences the confidence to return to a live event of this nature and will create a Covid secure environment for staff, volunteers and artists.

The Hat Fair 2021 will be ticketed. All ticket money goes towards supporting Play to the Crowd  and the performers.

Please note that the details of this event have been provided by the festival promoter and are subject to change should the government’s roadmap out of lockdown regulations change.  Please check on the event website before booking.
