There is just one week to go until HowTheLightGetsIn festival returns to Hay-on-Wye in May 2018 with more ideas, magic, music and wonder than ever before. For one weekend, the world's leading thinkers head to HowTheLightGetsIn's idyllic festival site set on the edge of the Black Mountains, next to the River Wye. But it's not just debates and talks. There's also an inspiring lineup of music, comedy and performance across our atmospheric and intimate venues.
