Save the dates: we're busy developing some exciting plans for the next Hay Festival Winter Weekend, scheduled to take place 24–28 November 2021. Our programme will be unveiled in the autumn so sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear.

Thank you to every one of our supporters over this past year: each contribution has helped us on this path to rebuild, grow our audience and support our future work. If you are in a position to continue supporting us, please donate or join the Festival family and become a Friend, Patron or Benefactor.

And in the meantime you can explore last year's highlights over on Hay Player now.
