Event 2

Ben Fogle talks to Peter Florence

Land Rover

Venue: THE SWAN BALLROOM
Ben has travelled the length of the British Isles in an old Series 1 Land Rover, spending time with Defender enthusiasts and visiting the places that are key in the story of this iconic vehicle. The Land Rover Defender mirrors many of our national traits, stiff upper-lipped and slightly eccentric and is, of course, a favourite of Her Majesty the Queen.

Event 3

The Ben Baddoo Afrobeat Band

Venue: HAY CASTLE

Led by the inimitable Ghanaian Ben Baddoo on balafon and vocals, the two guitarists weave shimmering lines over the top of a solid groove from the drums and double bass. For tonight’s party the stunning Senegalese drummer Landing Mane (pictured) will be joining the group adding even more West African magic to the evening. Be prepared to dance all night long.
