The annual literature festival that is held in Hay on Wye, a picturesque town in Powys, takes place once again this May. If you are a fan of literature, as well as interesting topics of discussion, here are just three of the many famous people that you can see there, talking about a broad range of subjects to inspire you…
Tim Peake – The first British astronaut to spacewalk from the ISS, Tim Peake is an inspiration for anyone who has an interest in space exploration, and has written books on the subject, for both adults and children, as well as a collection of photographs.
For anyone who is interested in space, Tim Peake is someone that you must see whilst at the Hay Festival!
Alastair Campbell – Most famous for working with Tony Blair during the New Labour period when Blair was the prime minister, Alastair Campbell still talks about politics, as well as the charities that he supports, such as mental health. He writes for the New European – https://www.theneweuropean.co.uk/contributor/alastair-campbell/ as well as hosting a successful political podcast with Rory Stewart.
David Baddiel – Probably best well known as half of the double act Baddiel and Skinner, who released one of the most popular footballing anthems ever, David Baddiel is at the Hay festival to talk about one of the biggest, if not the biggest question that humanity has asked for millennia – does God exist?
