Hay Festival welcomes David Walliams!

Hey, Hay Festival-goers! David Walliams will be taking to the stage this May in South Wales as he celebrates ten glorious years of publishing.

If you’re new to Hay Festival, it’s a fabulous event where writers, artists, academics, thinkers and performers entertain and inspire their audience to reimagine their world. Speaking to a packed audience, David Walliams will be sharing the stories behind the stories, talking about the inspiration for his best-loved characters, reading extracts from some of his favourite titles and answering questions from the audience.

He’s written quite a lot since his very first novel, The Boy in The Dress, so he’ll have no shortage of characters, plots and stories to talk about. So, there might be a mention of the characters from The World’s Worst Children series, a whiff of his inspiration for Mr Stink and perhaps a little something from his bestselling novel Bad Dad. You’ll have to wait and see!

The event is sold out, but watch this space for little snippets and photos from the event! And if you’re one of the lucky people with tickets, please drop us a line on Facebook and share your story, photos or videos from the festival.

More about the event:

This year’s Hay Festival will run from 24 May until 3 June in a beautiful tented village on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales (UK). David Walliams will be at the Hay Festival Tata Tent on Saturday 26 May 2018 at 10am.
