Today we celebrated National Hat Day which has been celebrated since 1983 in museums, schools, libraries across the country.
A hat is one of the oldest human accessories dating back to approximately 5,000 years ago. Hats have been worn all throughout history for a variety of different purposes: to indicate social status or branch of military service; to indicate the wearer has a position of authority; for religious purposes or to denote nationality; for ceremonial or fashion purposes; or to protect the wearer from sun, rain or other hazards. It’s such an important article of clothing that millions of people all over the world will celebrate this day by dusting off their favourite hat and wearing it proudly in public.
Please see our wonderful range of hats worn during our assembly.
