Hay Festival India was held in Trivandrum in Kerala in 2010 and 2011.

The festival venue, Kanakakunnu Palace in Trivandrum, witnessed more than 30 events over three action-packed days and evenings.

The programme of events included authors and speakers from India and across the world, gathering among the tranquil waterways and lush hill stations of this tropical southern state.
