Winchester Hat Fair

Today we met up with some other homeschoolers at the Winchester Hat Fair. It was the first time we had been and was a really good day! The Hat Fair is a wonderful, colourful celebration of theatre and music, where entertainers from all over the world perform voluntarily in exchange for money to be thrown into their hats.

The day started with a parade through the town centre - we joined in with the homeschoolers to promote Home Education in Hampshire,

Then after a picnic lunch the performances started. This guy wrapped his head in rubber bands, and then escaped from a straight jacket while riding a unicycle!!

We (obviously) had a shopping and coffee break - Winchester has some amazing shops!

We admired the decorated trees,

Watched this performer escape from a rope made from underwear while balancing a flaming torch on his face!! He also juggled flaming torches and worked a diablo!

Before we came home Hannah joined some of the other children trying out various circus skills in the workshop area, her favourite thing was the hula hoop which she got the hang of really quickly and was dancing around trying to do tricks with it

Another great home schooling day :-)
