HATstock at Stockport Hat Museum

HATstock Stockport Hat Museum

HATstock March 2017In June The Hat Stand pop-up shop will re-open at the Winter Garden. But before our grand opening we have a few events planned for the coming months.

First on our list is HATstock on Saturday 25th March at Stockport Hat Museum.

If you like hats, you will love this place! It is a hatter’s heaven.



The event is a celebration of hat making in the North and we are incredibly honoured to have been invited to not only take part in the showcase, but to give a talk about how we, as individuals, got into millinery and how we got together to become The Hat Stand.




We wouldn’t expect you to visit this event just because we are there, so we need to tell you how much MORE is going to be happening on the day! There will be showcases from 11 Northern milliners, each with a unique style and approach to hat making, 6 short talks covering a range of hat related topics and a marketplace to explore the materials and equipment used in millinery.

Last, but by no means least (and as a history buff, this is my favourite bit!) there will be tours of the museum where you can discover the history of hat making and it’s importance in the heritage of Stockport.


We know what you are thinking, all of this? In one day? How much will that cost?
The answer is very simply, nothing. Nada. Niet.


The whole day is entirely FREE, but you do need to register for tickets to the event and for the talks.  You can do that quickly and easily via the HATstock Eventbrite page.

If you would like to book specifically for our talk, The Hat Stand presents ‘Journeys into Millinery’, you can do that via Eventbrite too. Our talk is now 40% sold out so if you would like to come, please don’t delay in booking your space.We will be speaking between 11.30-12, so if you will have plenty of time to enjoy the rest of event.
We very much hope you will be able to join us in Stockport for what promises to be a fantastic day. Plus, we can’t deny it won’t be lovely to see some familiar and friendly faces in the crowd!
