Hay Literary Festival started off under water and oozy mud but then the sun came out and people cooked instead of shivered in the marquees. Good ol' British weather!
I saw Will Self, Moazzam Begg, James Lovelock, Miles Kington, Princess Michael of Kent, Rageh Omaar, Gerald Scarfe and Al Gore to name but a few - mostly for free as I was stewarding. Oh and I bumped into Dennis Healey for a short chat too!!!
