Become a benefactor
The Hay Festival is essentially a meeting of friends and kindred spirits. To be a Friend of the Festival is to be part of an international meeting of culture and ideas; to have special access and benefits at each of the festivals that are taking place every year in more than eight countries; and to hear and share in the ideas, literature, music, spirit of celebration, and much more.
Minimum donation: 2.500.000 COP/£800.
