Each year Hay Festival produces two specially curated Schools Days, blending live performance, workshops and storytelling. The events are free for all state schools and take place on the first Thursday and Friday of Hay Festival in May/June. These schools days are funded by the Welsh Government and Hay Festival Foundation.
Our line-up for the 2018 Schools Programme at Hay Festival featured a stellar selection of internationally acclaimed scientists, historians, poets, novelists and entertainers, including authors Julian Clary, Eoin Colfer, David Almond, Patrice Lawrence, Cressida Cowell, Laura Dockrill; poets Joe Coelho and Eric Ngalle Charles, storyteller Daniel Morden; maths prodigy Anne-Marie Imafidon; BBC presenter Katie Thistleton; and broadcaster and teen ambassador Gemma Cairney.
We look forward to announcing our 2019 Schools Programme in the spring. For enquiries, please contact email@example.com.
