Bill Clinton once called it the "Woodstock of the mind". This shows just how significant Hay Festival has become in its thirty years of existence. For ten days in May, this event is a celebration of literature in all its forms in Cardiff. Writers from all over the world, whether novelists, poets, playwrights or screenwriters, come together to share, inspire and champion the colours of literature. With numerous activities for all ages, Hay Festival is a must in Cardiff, whether you are with friends or family.
