Festival of Music, Art, Walks & Talks!

Friday 15th to Sunday 17th September 2023

“A Fusion of Fantasy & Folklore!”

It is with great pleasure and excitement that we can announce the theme for the festival in September 2023.

The Fitzwilliam String Quartet will be joined by pianist Simon Callaghan, folk musicians and Richard Wigmore to create a weekend jam-packed with chamber music concerts, a piano recital, a folk music gig, an art exhibition, film screening, talks and walks all based in Hay-on-Wye. The diverse programme will explore compositions across the centuries taking inspiration from the magic of fantasy and influenced by folk tunes and folk lore. Take the opportunity to explore the bookshops and the history and folklore of the area in walks and talks around this famous Town of Books.

Put the dates in your diary and join us for a magical and highly entertaining weekend in the historic town of Hay-on-Wye situated in the breath taking location on the edges of the Black Mountains!

See you there!
