Details

Celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, the Hay Festival brings together writers from around the world to debate and share stories at its festival in the staggering beauty of the Welsh Borders.

Hay celebrates great writing from poets and scientists, lyricists and comedians, novelists and environmentalists, and the power of great ideas to transform our way of thinking.

The exchange of views and meeting of minds create and inspire revelations personal, political and educational. Hay is, in Bill Clinton's phrase, 'The Woodstock of the mind'.

Hay Festival was founded around a kitchen table in 1987 and continues to attract the most exciting writers, filmmakers, comedians, politicians and musicians to inspire, delight and entertain.

For 10 days in May, Hay is full of stories, ideas, laughter and music.
