Hay Festival Winter Weekend

Hay Festival Winter Weekend 2017

 Hay Castle, Hereford
Taking place at a number of different venues in Hay-on-Wye, Wales, beneath the Black Mountains and on the banks of the River Wye, the festival offers four days of family fun within the picturesque surrounds of the town’s independent bookshops, cafés, and markets, just a stone’s throw from the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Blending literary conversation, immersive performances and family workshops, with the best of the town’s seasonal shopping and a chance to explore the famed natural surroundings in all their autumnal splendour, the festival offers a perfect winter getaway.

Now in its 18th year, the programme of talks will be the most ambitious yet, highlighting the world’s best new fiction, non-fiction and poetry. A new venue will double the festival’s seated capacity and further transform the town centre into a playground of ideas. Events will also begin a day earlier than previous years, with programmed talks and performances from Thursday 23 November.

Workshops for young people take inspiration from the festival’s #HAYTREES project, with tree- to-type printmaking, festival crafts and Forest School events, plus a host of engaging talks for all ages featuring the very best writers for young people.

The town’s atmospheric market square will be a focus of festivities: On Friday 24 November, the Hay Christmas lights will be turned on, transforming the town into a winter wonderland brimming with festive cheer, accompanied by carol singing, readings and evening entertainment.

On Saturday 25 November, the Hay Food Festival celebrates all that’s good about winter cooking, with over 50 stalls showcasing the very best of local produce, from savoury to sweet.

On Sunday 26 November, Hay Does Vintage transforms the square into a festive outdoor fleamarket with over 50 vintage and retro traders offering a diverse collection of items from clothes, textiles and jewellery, to furniture, collectables, and kitchenalia.
