A gift subscription to Hay Player allows your lucky recipient to play as much audio and film as they like for a whole year.
How it works: We send a gift voucher for you to give to your friend or loved one. They can use the voucher to purchase the annual subscription via hayfestival.org/shop. Hay Player access is granted via their own unique login.
We can send the voucher to you or directly to your recipient – just add their name and postal address as well as any personal message from you to them in the Special Instructions box at checkout.
