Past event

Hay Festival, 2016

28-29 May 2016

Letters Live travelled to Hay for a third year after very popular visits in 2014 and 2015 at which Benedict Cumberbatch, Louise Brealey and Jude Law headlined, and following a sold-out, highly acclaimed run at the Freemasons’ Hall in London in March 2016.


An evening show was first, with a phenomenal line-up that included such talents as Maxine Peake, Olivia Colman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Jones, Mark Strong, and Louise Brealey. The next day saw the cast return for a family matinee that left the packed Tata Tent emotionally drained and gripped throughout.
