Welcome to

The Hat Club


Sophie and Zoe are delighted to present to you The Hat Club. This is an amalgamation of the prestigious Newmarket Hat Hire, which has been in operation since 1994, along with the more recently established The Hat Club which was based in London. Whilst we have decided to operate as The Hat Club, we will continue to be based at the Newmarket Hat Hire premises in Fordham, near Newmarket. We will continue to work with the existing established milliners of Newmarket Hat Hire such as Frances Heeley, Gemma J, Gill Tate, Marzi, and Vivien Sheriff, whilst adding some exciting new milliners that The Hat Club has collaborated with over the last five years; Edel Ramberg, Gina Foster, Jane Taylor, Juliette Botterill, Justine Bradley-Hill, Laura Apsit Livens, Philip Tracey, Rachel Black and Rosie Olivia. This will add a fresh dimension to the collection, which now boasts over 800 fabulous hats.

We hope to maintain the friendly relaxed atmosphere in the showroom at Fordham and are not just a hat hire shop, but a complete service. Our aim is to make sure that all of our customers choose the right hat and above all, enjoy wearing it. Hiring exquisite millinery means that you can enjoy wearing top couture headpieces at a fraction of the purchase price.

Customers are encouraged to bring along their outfit when visiting the showroom to enable us to determine the colour, shape and overall look. With plenty of private parking, choosing a hat can be both easy and fun.

Newmarket Hat Hire has previously featured in Harpers & Queen on their recommended ‘A list’ of milliners, and also on BBC and ITV Regional programmes, in the national press and Hello magazine.

Most of our pieces are crafted by top couture milliners and are exclusively created for us.

We look forward to welcoming you to our showroom either in person or online very soon.
