How to book

You will need to purchase tickets whether you attend in person or watch online.

If you wish to attend in person, please see the individual listings below for ticket prices.

If you intend to watch online the best value option is the Online Festival Pass for £25.00, which will allow you to watch all streamed events either live or on replay for the duration of the festival. Individual online event tickets cost £5.00 each. Please note that the Online Festival Pass is for viewing events online only.

After the festival you will be able to watch everything again if you buy a subscription to our Hay Player which is £15 for a year’s access to thousands of Hay Festival events dating back to 1995.

Whether you’re watching online, or attending in-person, we will email you all the relevant information you’ll need. Please check our FAQs or get in touch with our Box Office if you have any other questions.
