All you need to know about this literary festival that set the standards. If it's too early to find out about what's going on at the UK's best-known literature festival, the last one can be revisited at this friendly, well-organised website.
Details of the last festival's programme, an archive of audio files and an email diary will all give a flavour of what's in store for those who have never visited this marathon literary event. There are links to tourist information sites for accommodation details and travel information plus the opportunity to sign up for news bulletins about Hay. The new festival programme is added to the site around February or March.
