Hay Festival Live Stream to Libraries 2018

Hay Festival, working in partnership with the British Library and the Living Knowledge Network, offered a day of live streaming direct from festival events to libraries across the UK on Saturday 26 May.

At five time slots during the day we offered a choice of two events, one for adults and one for children. Libraries signed in or created an account before accessing the live streams.

Below is the programme that participating libraries were able to access via our live stream. There was a choice of two events, one for adults and one for children, at different times during the day.

Questions were tweeted to the events on #HayFestival2018 and directed towards the speakers.

We're delighted that so many people enjoyed our Library Hay Day on Saturday 26 May.

Thank you for joining us.

The following events were streamed live.


For more access to Hay Festival events past and present, the Hay Player features audio and film gathered at Hay Festivals internationally over the last 30 years.
