HAY FESTIVAL 21–31 MAY 2015: I would really love to go if I could afford it. This and The London Book Fair at Olympia are both what’s been on my mind for years. I guess booking flights tickets, hotel and all that wouldn’t come cheap. So it’s definitely something I need to save for in addition to all that book buying from Folio! One day though I will. This sounds like the perfect place for me! I love the poster. Don’t know who designed the poster but would love to have a higher resolution image.
If you’re so lucky to be in London, then remember to book your tickets early on www.hayfestival.com
Hay Festival—“Hay Festival brings together the best writers and readers to share stories and ideas. At Hay you can enjoy great writers and thinkers from around the world and discover new ideas in the arts and sciences, politics and history. Among the star writers speaking this year are Vikram Seth, Elif Shafak, Meera Syal, Asne Seierstad, Yuval Noah Harari, Azar Nafisi and Helen Macdonald. The festival celebrates the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta by inviting writers and thinkers to examine ‘what we would like’ in the fields of law, education, warfare, democracy and equality – and inviting Haymakers to pitch some demands for a new charter.”
