For anyone who has never been to the Hay Festival, I cannot recommend it highly enough! This year, the sun was shining and crowds of people were sitting around reading, enjoying talks and chatting about books.
In the town itself, the party atmosphere continues. The castle courtyard is full of food stalls, the market place is a mix of craft, antique and book stalls- and let's not forget the ice cream parlour!
And it's all set in the lovely Welsh countryside which is particularly beautiful in the sunshine!
Famous for its bookshops, Hay is hay-ven for those of us who love books and spending time in bookshops. This is one of my favourites!
So, having set the scene, and hopefully tempted you to go, I will share some of my favourite events over the next couple of days!
