Imagine the world
The eleventh edition of Hay Festival Segovia takes place between 22–25 September 2016, following the opening on Saturday 17 September.
In Segovia, the Spain of three cultures coexisted among the mosques, the Jewish quarter and the cathedral. After more than a decade, the festival proposes to create again a refuge of civilisation, to celebrate new ideas and inspiring stories, the Four centuries of Shakespeare, Cervantes, and Inca Garcilaso, debates on Europe or on design and dreams. Our way of confronting the eventful reality is through the transformative power of the word.
This year's edition of Hay Festival Segovia will feature participants such as Julie Christie, Juan Diego Flórez, Benedetta Tagliabue, John Banville, Namita Gokhale, Juan Luis Arsuaga, Hélène Carrére D'Encausse, Juan José Millás, Rosa Montero, Antonio Muñoz Molina, Julia Navarro, Javier Cercas, María Pagés and Lorenzo Silva, among many other artists, writers, scholars and scientists.
