The Hay Festival

The Hay Festival of Literature & Arts is fantastic event held in late May early June every year in the small town of Hay-on-Wye.  Hay-on-Wye was already well known as a haven for book lovers before the festival, with a range of second hand book shops stocked to the ceilings.  

The festival is a celebration of arts and literature, the programme has expanded in the past decade to include music from top artists, including many of the world’s greatest musicans. There are now also a number of fantastic fringe events, as well as a new festival called When the Light Gets in, which is focused on philosophy and has a programme of fascinating talks
