The famous Hay Festival will run from 27th May to 6th June 2021, although at the time of writing this it is uncertain if limited audiences will be allowed to participate in person. We will update when we have more details. Hay Festival Wales brings writers and readers together to share stories and ideas in events that expire, examine and entertain.  Noble Prize winners and novelists, scientists and politicians, historians and musicians talk with audiences in a dynamic exchange of ideas.

Hay Festival is free to enter and packed with stalls, exhibitors and activities.  You will find a fantastic bookshop where you can buy festival books and meet your favourite authors.  In the wonderful gardens you can relax with a book or keep the kids happy in the make & do tents where there is glitter and glue a plenty.

There are numerous free activities and workshops some of which need booking in advance so please check their website, for their programme of events and booking details.
