Today we're announcing the first few debates and our festival theme for HowTheLightGetsIn Hay 2019.

Following the sell-out success of our London festival, we are taking the theme, Tribal Truths and New Wisdom, to Hay-on-Wye next May with a whole new set of debates on the big ideas that underpin our increasingly tribal world:

The Will of the People will take on populism and people power. But the tribal world extends well beyond politics, debates across the festival weekend include: After the God Particle, When the Future Doesn't Work, Lost in Language, In the Name of Love, Imagining Experience, The Universe that Wasn't There, and What's It All For?  Find our more about the first debates here.

Tickets are still available at Earlybird prices. But they won't last long - click here to get yours today.

Stay tuned for more announcements shortly!
