HowTheLightGetsIn is more than just an unrivalled programme of debates and music: we put on a host of spectacular experiences too. We lovingly construct a space of wonder and delight, a beautiful escape from all the shackles of the day-to-day. Our festival was built as a haven for the curious, a place to roam around in Hay's most truly wild space and rediscover the things that make life wonderful. From kaleidoscopic parties at The Hat to round table feasts with intellectual luminaries, HowTheLightGetsIn is built on spine-tingling, life-affirming moments that stay with you for the rest of the year. Come to Hay-on-Wye and step into a playground for the soul.
