@InterestingLit #OnThisDay in 1988, the first ever Hay Festival began at Hay-on-Wye. Events included readings by Carol Ann Duffy and Arnold Wesker
@trillingual Like David Goodhart, I haven’t been invited to speak at the Hay Festival either – a shocking attack on my free speech.
@danzyhowells Most of hay festival kitted out in hunters today. All colours. :)
@sarfrazmanzoor Overheard at @hayfestival yesterday: ‘My gout’s returned- I think it’s because of all that dancing at the party last night.’
@CeejaytheAuthor Am now at the point in my preparations for Hay Festival when I can’t remember for the life of me what my book is about.
@IrrepressyBecky could I get to the Hay festival within 45 minutes that’s the question
@dgp202 I want to win the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse award someday. Or I want to buy a pig. Whatever comes first really.
