Hay Festival

If you're looking for something to do during your stay here in Mid Wales then the Hay Festival is definitely worth a visit. The festival runs from May 26 to June 5 in the mid-Wales town of Hay On Wye. There is loads to do and explore through out the festival as about near 500 events take place in this festival. 

For ten days a year 85,000 people come from all over the UK, Europe, America and the rest of the world to join a carnival celebration of ideas and stories at the Hay Festival.

The programme of some five hundred events takes place in the tented festival village during the spring bank half term holiday. Writers, politicians, poets, scientists, comedians, philosophers and musicians come together on the greenfield site to talk, eat, think, drink and be merry.
