So this year, at rather short notice a friend and I have decided to attend the Hay Festival on Sunday 26th May in Hay-on-Wye Wales.

As we’ve left it quite late some of the events we’d like to have attended were sold out – let that be a lesson to us and others, plan early!

However, we have managed to book 3 events for the Sunday, which are as follows:

  • Maggie Shipstead talks to Allison Pearson

A conversation with the winner of the 2012 Dylan Thomas Prize for her elegant East Coast
social satire Seating Arrangements – praised as a perfectly-realised world of exquisite comic savagery.”

  • India Knight talks to Damian Barr

An hilarious novel about the female midlife crisis from the star columnist, Twitter queen and author of My Life On A Plate, Don’t You Want Me and Comfort And Joy.

  • Marcus Brigstocke

No less than the total restructuring of every aspect of life in Britain organised through the medium of jokes. See this show – WIN a free hospital or school! Second prize – a major High Street bank

It’s sure to be a great day and we hope for a dry day but we won’t let the weather spoil our day of culture…more to follow 🙂
