Hay Festival, Hay on Wye

Come to Wales and Britain’s ‘town of books’ for ten glorious days of music, comedy, argument and literature. The festival is held at the end of May every year and attracts leading writers and poets as well as plenty of celebrities. Free to enter, the festival is a fantastic day out packed full of activities and exhibition stands with wonderful welsh crafts and artisan food.

There's plenty to keep the children entertained in the Make & Take and Mess tents where art, craft, paint and glue are order of the day. The glorious gardens are perfect to kick back and relax with a book and a picnic.

Many events require booking in advance so please remember to check the Hay Festival website for information.
