The Hay Literary Festival runs from the last bank holiday weekend in May for 10 days. I have been stewarding this event for over 20 years and look after the visitors to Oxfam Moot stage with my sister.
It has certainly grown over the years from a humble gathering of ladies in a caravan to the event of today greeting over 100,000 visitors to 7 main venues and numerous trade stands and the largest temporary bookshop.
In addition there is a special childrens programme and area for them to ‘make and take’ a treasured memory.
There is a large food hall showcasing local producers and various other places for food and refreshments. The town is just a short shuttlebus ride from the site or easily walkable if you prefer.
Hope to see you there!
