Once again I was organising the Hay Winter Festival 2018 stewards. The festival this year was held in the marquee in the cattle market. It was festively decorated and had a selection of stalls selling wreaths, art, drink, reading lights and of cause books by the authors giving the talks. The events were well received and the weather was quite kind. Also there was the Christmas lights ceremony, a food festival on Saturday and a vintage festival on Sunday. The events were rounded off by a community performance of the Messiah in St Mary’s church. If you are thinking of attending next year it will be on 28 November to 1 December 2019.
