According to staff at the box office today (Saturday 29th May) has been the busiest day ever in the 23 year history of the Hay Festival. It’s not hard to believe as the site set in fields a short walk from the town is heaving.
A couple of heavy downpours have meant that the tents housing cafes, bars and dining venues are packed out. The de rigour festival wellies are also out in force. Happily the forecast for tomorrow is dry and sunny, which begs the question; will the crowds tomorrow be even greater?
