The winter weekend full programme is out
The Winter Festival is one of our highlights in Hay on Wye each year. It is a quality packed event sprinkled with the atmosphere of Christmas. We look forward to having the time to attend the great events or just hang out in Hay with friends enjoying the buzz and the many other things going on in the town.
A big little Festival
Now in its 18th year, the Winter Weekend is a smaller version of the main festival with events taking place in four venues in the town. This year's Festival will be our biggest yet with a new 450-seater venue and extended programming. The town’s atmospheric market square will be a focus of festivities.
On Friday 24 November, the Hay Christmas lights will be turned on, transforming the town into a winter wonderland brimming with festive cheer, accompanied by carol singing, readings and evening entertainment.
A whole weekend of events for all the family
On Saturday 25 November, Hay Food Festival celebrates all that’s good about winter cooking, with over 50 stalls showcasing the very best of local produce, from savoury to sweet.
On Sunday 26 November, Hay Does Vintage transforms the square into a festive outdoor fleamarket with over 50 vintage and retro traders offering a diverse collection of items from clothes, textiles and jewellery, to furniture, collectables, and kitchenalia.
