Many friends of mine are lucky enough to be visiting the Hay Festival this weekend. The festival begins today and runs until 31st May.
The Hay Festival of Literature & Arts is an annual literature festival held in Hay-on-Wye, Wales for ten days from May to June. Devised by Peter Florence in 1988, the festival was described by Bill Clinton in 2001 as “The Woodstock of the mind”. The festival has expanded in recent years and now includes musical performances and film previews. A children’s festival, “Hay Fever”, runs alongside the main festival.
Fingers crossed the weather forecasts are right and the sun shines all weekend! Enjoy!
