The Hay Festival, set in the Welsh border town of Hay-on-Wye, was founded in 1987 and is chiefly sponsored by The Telegraph and SkyArts. The Hay Festival website says:
The festival continues to attract the most exciting writers, filmmakers, comedians, politicians and musicians to inspire, delight and entertain. For 10 days in May, Hay is full of stories, ideas, laughter and music. . . . We invite the writers and performers (great writers work in all media) we most admire. We try to bring the greatest contemporary practitioners and the most exciting new voices. The directors talk to publishers, writers and a huge range of advisors – including many of the festival-goers.
