Quakers at Hay Festival
25 May - 4 June 2017, Powys
Hay Festival runs 24 May to 4 June and is famed for its focus on literature and the arts. We will organise a Quaker presence there with volunteers from Southern Marches Area Meeting and Wales.
We are seeking volunteers to help on the exhibition stand which will be open from about 9:30 to 18:30 daily.
Throughout the festival we will host an exhibition space where we will sell Quaker published books and give away free materials. We will also have an activity for children – making smash scrap books.
Quaker authors on stage
Excitingly we also have a main stage event on Sunday 28 May with three Quaker authors – Sheila Hancock, Philip Gross, and Tracey Chevalier – speaking about the Quaker Way and its influence on their creativity. You may wish to attend this talk on the evening of Sunday 28 May – please note you will need to book tickets via Hay box office.
Visit The Pales Quaker Meeting House
Last but not least there will be an outing offer for festival-goers to visit The Pales Meeting House where there will be a free cream tea, history talk, and activities for children.
All in all, we are set for a fun-filled week of literature and outreach.This is a fantastic opportunity to let people know about Quakerism and welcome them if they are interested. Get in touch if you would like to find out more.
