Festival Accommodation in Hay-on-Wye

We are fully booked for the festival but visit Riverside Festival Camping for idyllic glamping, right on the banks on the river Wye.

For a town with under 2000 citizens, the cultural delights on offer are quite staggering.

HowTheLightGetsIn  takes place concurrently at the globe at hay. Proudly noted as the largest philosophy festival in the world, the venue hosts nearly 500 events in the ten day period. In an unusual but seemingly perfect union, the intellectual stimulation of the day is met with legendary parties by night with some of the best festival bands and DJs from across the UK.

Hay Literature Festival takes place each June and is estimated to bring half a million tourists to the town. Previous highlights at the event have included Stephen Fry, Tim Minchin, Eric Schmidt and Bill Clinton who famously described Hay as “Woodstock for the mind”.


More recent additions to Hay’s scene include Hay Walking Festival  in October and Hay Cycling Festival
