London, you were incredible. Thank you to everyone who joined us at HowTheLightGetsIn. With our weekend tickets selling out, our London debut was a huge success and we can’t wait to storm the capital again next year. We loved our new site and its incredible backdrop which complimented the day’s events. Keep an eye out for festival highlights on our social media channels, and we’d love for you to share your experience with us too.

Now, we look forward to returning to Hay-on-Wye for the full festival experience. Join us in May, 2019, where we’ll be bringing 4 days of debate, music, comedy and performance to the beautiful town of Hay-on-Wye. We saw lots of new shiny faces in London and we hope to see you in our countryside setting. Bring your brains charged, your dancing shoes, and probably some wellies too. Take advantage of our earlybird prices and have your May bank holiday sorted.

We’ll be announcing our festival theme shortly, but you can be sure that we won’t be shying away from the biggest issues the world faces today. We look forward to welcoming you in a few months time.
