Thanks for the info. Didn’t know about this one.

I was in Hay on Wye (coincidentally, my parents have a house there where we were staying for the late May BH weekend) and went to couple of days of this (it continues until next weekend)

It was great: interesting philosophy, for sure; small enough that you can actually talk to the various people informally too; + (clearly not guaranteed in future years) beautiful weather and sitting out by the river drinking beer and listening to music, rides for the kids, etc.

Seriously recommend
