This is the first Hinterland Festival, a chance to build on four years of fruitful association with our mentors in Hay-on-Wye, Wales, and an opportunity to forge our own path.
The word ‘hinterland’ is suggestive of something that is not merely metropolitan, something ‘beyond the pale’, mysterious, imaginative, challenging and, perhaps, just a little provocative. To reach any hinterland involves a journey. Ours is no exception. We invite you to accompany us. There will be lots of laughter, discussion, music, and a little bit of magic, along the way.
Bí pairteach linn, le do thoil.
