Newbury Building Society hosted a theatre performance at this year's Woolly Hat Fair in Winchester.

Newbury Building Society had a flair for the dramatics at this year’s Woolly Hat Fair in Winchester, as part of an immersive theatre experience. 

The branch hosted a short performance of ‘A Very Neighbourly Christmas’ , performed by professional actors, on Saturday 2nd and 9th December – a play specifically created to include many of the Society’s values and characteristics.  

The 20 minute play introduced the Newburys, a local family throwing a very public Christmas party with passers-by and visitors to the branch as esteemed guests. However, all didn’t go to plan with essential Christmas crackers being left on the bus, the Ambassador of Newbury unable to find the branch, and misplaced front door keys.
Lisa Wedge, Office Manager of Newbury Building Society’s Winchester branch said: “It was an absolute delight hosting this year’s ‘A Very Neighbourly Christmas’. Not only was it engaging, but the performance was funny, immersive and highly entertaining – perfect for shoppers looking to get into the Christmas spirit. We thoroughly enjoyed the Woolly Hat Fair, following the success of the summer Hat Fair, and we look forward to many more events in the future.”

The performances were part of a series of short pop-up outdoor theatrical shows and visual art installations across Winchester over the Christmas season. All of the bitesize plays focused on heart-warming stories based on local people and well-known places in the wider city.
