Put on your fanciest hat and join in the dancing! Initially held onboard ships, Bonnet Hops were a popular form of entertainment and sometimes used as a fundraiser. Based on one held in St. Mary’s in July 1887, the villagers have organised a bonnet hop to raise funds for their local militia. Come and see how this was an effective fundraiser in the 19th century and enjoy the dancing, singing, and other festivities!
Be sure to pick up your ticket to the Bonnet Hop at the Welcome Centre admissions desk or at the Print Shop.
