The Hay Festival, Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales

Gillian Clarke and Robert Minhinnick in conversation with Rufus Mufasa | Hay Festival

The celebrated Welsh writers and poets read their work in a special evening for poetry. Robert Minhinnick has been awarded this year’s Hay Festival Medal for Poetry which will be presented on stage at this event. His new short prose book is Delirium, his sixteenth book with Seren, a kaleidoscopic collection in which poetry jostles consumerism, the implacability of the algorithm, local history, nature and much else. Clarke’s most recent book is The Gododdin: Lament for the Fallen, which charts the fall of 363 warriors in the battle of Catraeth, around the year 600 AD, when the men of the Brittonic kingdom of Gododdin rose to unite the Welsh and the Picts against the English, only to meet a devastating fate. Literary activist Rufus Mufasa is a pioneering participatory artist who advocates hip hop education and poetry development accessible to all.  Tickets: £10.
