Hay Festival 2009 [in Belfast]

According to the BBC report, between 23 May and 31 May the renowned Hay Festival of Literature will be holding a series of events in Belfast, centred around the Ulster Hall. I can’t seem to find any references to those events in the main festival programme [zipped PDF file], and it’s not entirely clear that the authors and others named in the report will also be appearing in Belfast, but the BBC promise that full details will be announced soon.

    Aah! The Hay Festival in Belfast. They could call it the Why-in-Hay Festival.

  • Tir Eoghain Gael

    Call it the Hay Festival and you will end up starting another riot when us culchies get there and find out it is not what we were expecting!

    That’s worth keeping an eye on.

    But, for now, it doesn’t seem to give us any more information than the BBC report.
