Hay Festival Scribblers Tour 2019

In 2019 Hay Festival is back on the road, thanks to Welsh Government funding, bringing the Scribblers Tour to schoolchildren across Wales. We're delighted to announce this fantastic 2019 line-up with a new creative writing workshop on the programme led by Jenny Valentine.

Don't forget to apply to the Go and See Fund from Arts Council Wales for your travel bursary. You need to apply at least four weeks before your visit to The Scribblers Tour.


The tour will be hosted in five universities across Wales this year, bringing top class writers and performers to pupils in Key Stages 3 & 4. 

We will be exploring the many ways to build stories, express ideas and inspire empathy and creativity through the power of writing.


Week 1 – 4–8 February 2019 – Years 7 & 8

Week 2 – 11–15 February 2019 – Years 9 & 10
