Are you curious, adventurous, dreamy, imaginative and ready to have fun? Do you like listening, talking, cutting and sticking, singing or dressing up? And, of course, reading? I hope so, because the HAYDAYS programme is packed with events designed to celebrate the creativity that can make all of that happen - view the 2016 programme here.
We have our very own festival site within the main festival site - fun for all the family!
Most of our HAYDAYS events take place in the Starlight Stage and The Cube venues. There are also a bunch of lovely extras, including...
An opportunity to get crafting, from 10am to 5pm every day. Get messy and creative: your imagination is the limit!
A lovely, messy space for learning new things. You can come to creative workshops and drop-in sessions happening throughout each day in here.
Jam-packed with lots of lovely flavours, including our favesBanana Crunch and Chocolate.
Books and signings by all the children's and Young Adult authors on the programme are available at the Hay Festival Bookshop on the main site, just a step away from the HAYDAYS Courtyard.
