Hay Festival in the time of the pandemic

Organised by M4C student, Ellen Addis

Hay Festival’s Digital Director Adrian Lambert will talk to the Centre for Contemporary Literature and Culture (CCLC) at the University of Birmingham on the16th June about organising the popular literary festival during a pandemic, reflecting on digital festivals, how Hay Festival adapted to going online last year, and their most recent 2021 edition.

The event will begin at 4pm with Adrian talking us through his experience hosting a literary festival in a pandemic, and then we will move onto a question and answer session, allowing attendees to ask Adrian anything they wish.

All are welcome! The Zoom link will be available once you sign up.

Any questions, please contact Ellen Addis (efa035@student.bham.ac.uk), or message us on our Twitter page.
