Bridport Hat Festival '16
Briport's famous Hat Festival takes place on Friday 2nd September and Saturday 3rd September 2016 (main day), at locations throughout the town.
The Hat Festival has enough to keep the whole family entertained with Bridport’s eclectic Saturday market, trade stalls and music throughout the town. Children will love the storytelling in the library on Saturday morning at 11, the street entertainment and all the fun goings-on in Millennium Green.
Richard III in Bridport
It was whilst on a visit to York that Arthur Woodgate discovered the link between Bridport and Richard the Third, popularly known as “The King in the Car Park.”
Now plans are afoot to commemorate the visit of the much maligned monarch. In the riverside gardens by East Bridge an information notice board identifies the location of the Priory of St John the Baptist just across the road, but gives no indication that this is where Richard is considered to have stayed.
“Nor will you find any mention of this anywhere in Bridport,” commented Mr Woodgate, “but I’m pleased to say that this is about to change.”

Bridport's large street market has a good selection of stalls selling foodstuffs, clothing and hardware, flowers and plants, pictures and paintings, books and IT goods ...and much more. Many of the traders are long established and use the distinctive Bridport Market bags when selling their goods.
The Saturday market is particularly popular with traders, a special attraction is the large number of antique and Bric-a-Brac stalls located in lower South Street. Anyone wishing to trade in the Street market should contact Bridport Town Council for an information application pack which is also available here
