The Hay Festival brings writers and readers together in conversations here and around the world. For 11 days a year many thousands of people come from all over the UK, Europe, America and the rest of the world to join a carnival celebration of ideas and stories.
We’re delighted to launch our programme for the Festival’s 34th spring edition, broadcasting for free online from Hay-on-Wye to the world.
Over 12 days, more than 200 acclaimed writers, global policy makers, historians, poets, pioneers and innovators join us to inspire, examine and entertain in events for all ages.
All events will be closed-captioned and available to watch for free 24 hours from their live broadcast.
