1. Overview

    Hay Festival Winter Weekend will return in November 2019.

  2. Programme

    Enjoy a weekend of storytelling, conversation and entertainment at the Hay Festival Winter Weekend. The Winter Weekend is a smaller version of the main festival which invites you to come in from the cold and indulge in discussion, debate and to celebrate a love of literature.

    At last year’s Winter Weekend, Baillie Gifford hosted an event with Simon Jenkins titled, From Pericles to Putin: A Short History of Europe. At this event Jenkins told the story of Europe’s evolution from a battlefield of warring tribes to peace, wealth and freedom.
