Milliners & Hatters Open Competition 2018-05-15T18:03:54+00:00

We regret to announce that the Milliners & Hatters Open Competition will not be held in 2018.

We have been unable to guarantee that the competition would be run to the increasingly exacting standards that we demand. This has occurred because we have not been able to appoint a suitable organiser who is able to devote sufficient time to achieve this objective. Our intention is to reintroduce the competition next year, and would thus be grateful if anyone who would like to be considered for the organiser’s position would contact us.
