Hall & Lower Gallery
From debate and dancing to art and argument, the globe at hay is an institution. Join us for Philosophy Sessions, which run throughout the day in the wonderful Hall space.

Venture outside and discover music and talks, cafés with free WiFi, and places to relax during the mayhem of the festival with a glass of wine. You'll also find creative Workshop Sessions out here. We'll have walks, stories and a whole host of interactive sessions. In addition, we'll be welcoming back The School of Life, who will be bringing their Breakfast Club to Hay.
