A Celebration of Home & Belonging

The Hay Festival - 21-31 May 2015



Hay-On-Wye - this is the place I call home  - where I live and love.

Y Gelli. Yma mae fy nghartre' - Yma mae fy nghalon.

This historic Marches town has seen many a bloody battle in it's time and lying on the Welsh border means that it has a particular, quirky duality. Each end of May, the world renowned 'Hay Festival' makes for a buzzing home for arts and literature....and - Hallelujah! Hay welcomes the Fitzwilliam String Quartet with other superb musicians who will give three concerts in our first Festival in April. Tickets are now on sale from Richard Booth's Bookshop  - 01497 820322.

This year The Hay Festival is from 21-31 May 2015


There's a 50% discount if you pre-order "Where My True Heart Lies" and you will receive the option of a discount on the album which is slated for early next year - latest. There will be vocals and a special performance by Les Penning on the 24 bit version that you'll have - this instrumental is just a taster of what's to come!
