Hay on Wye Book Festival

Hay on Wye Book Festival

Literary lovers are lured to this lovely market town - known as the Town of Books during the popular annual Hay Festival. Snugly nestled in the County of Powys, this is a hugely popular and picturesque Town

Hay on Wye - Book Festival

30 years ago, a recent graduate called Peter Florence decided to put on a literature festival. The first Hay Festival sold tickets from a caravan under the clock tower for events that took place in the British Legion and the back rooms of various pubs. The public proved enthusiastic. The festival moved to the school, expanded into various tents, and (still under the directorship of Florence) migrated to purpose-built sites to the west of the town, expanding as it went.

 

During festival week there is the Fair in the Square, featuring live local bands of high quality. There is Richard Booth's Bookshop, once home to uncounted millions of spiders, now bright and trig, with a fine café and terrace.  And finally there is Shepherds ice-cream parlour, a long-established Hay favourite, dispensing coffee, sandwiches and unbelievably delicious ice cream made with the milk of sheep that graze the sweet grass of Wales.

 

There is no charge for entrance to the Festival Site - you buy tickets only for the events you want to see. It is advisable to book in advance as places are limited - Click Here
