Hay Festival Patron

Patrons make a vital contribution to the success of the festival, contributing ideas and recommendations as well as being our most valued customers. The income from Patrons allows us to fund vital education work, supports our environmental aims and the long-term development of the festival.

As we pass the 30th anniversary of the Hay Festival, we invite you to support our fundraising and become a Patron.

In return for your support, we invite you to enjoy the following benefits:

•  Access to the Artists Restaurant for relaxing between events alongside the speakers and artists
•  Invitation to the closing concert with drinks in the Festival’s Green Room
•  Two tickets to the annual gala dinner at Hay Festival Wales
•  Special Friends entrance available in most of our venues
•  Daily pass for the official Festival car park
•  3 days' priority booking on all tickets (you will be notified via email of their release so that you may book in advance of the general public)

Once the festival in Wales is over, the benefits continue throughout the year with complimentary tickets for Hay Festival Segovia (September), Hay Festival Winter Weekend (November) and any one-off London Events.
