Details

Hay Festival Winter Weekend is an annual mini-festival taking place just before Christmas in Hay-on-Wye. Events take place at venues around the town, and include a wide range of author events, music, comedy and performance, as well as workshops for kids and Christmas shopping.

The Winter Weekend, which has been running for nearly twenty years, is a smaller version of the main festival with events taking place in venues in the town.

The town’s atmospheric market square is a focus of festivities: On the Friday, the Hay Christmas lights are turned on, transforming the town into a winter wonderland brimming with festive cheer, accompanied by carol singing, readings and evening entertainment.

On the Saturday, Hay Food Festival celebrates all that’s good about winter cooking, with over 50 stalls showcasing the very best of local produce, from savoury to sweet.

On the Sunday, Hay Does Vintage transforms the square into a festive outdoor fleamarket with over 50 vintage and retro traders offering a diverse collection of items from clothes, textiles and jewellery, to furniture, collectables, and kitchenalia.
