The Hay Festival, Lee Child, Carrie Fisher, Stephen Fry, and others. | MISCELLANEOUS | Forum
So this is one for my fellow British / Welsh Vern-ites.
I've just booked a shedload of tickets for the Hay Festival this year. And you should too! It's the last week in May in Hay-on-Wye (which I've mentioned before on the site, it's pretty much paradise for anybody who loves reading as it's a town that's full of bookshops) and has speakers that include Phil Rickman, Steven Moffat, Lee Child, Carrie Fisher and Stephen Fry. Last year I was at the main event, which was an interview with John LeCarre. It was ridiculously good (and is also available to listen to here: https://www.hayfestival.com/p-5496-john-le-carre.aspx.) This year I've planned a much more extensive holiday and have booked tickets for events pretty much every day.
If anybody is interested, take a look at the website here: https://www.hayfestival.com/m-93-hay-festival-2014.aspx. From past experience it's absolutely worth going to, although if you need to travel a serious distance you might want to book early as accommodation can be difficult to get. If you're just checking out the site for the first time, my advice would be to use the "filter by genre" section at the bottom-left of the homepage. It's probably the best way to find what you're interested in (otherwise, with so much stuff on, things just get really confusing).
