Booking is now open for the Hay Festival Winter Weekend which runs from 29 November to 1 December. This weekend is more joyously intimate than the main festival and perhaps a reminder of its more modest years in development. In the world of crime fiction this year tempts with Philip Kerr interviewed by Phil ‘Phil the Shelf’ Rickman; G F Newman interviewed by Peter Florence; and Phil Rickman himself also interviewed by Peter Florence. Cat lovers may like to note that John Bradshaw is talking ‘Cat Sense: The Feline Enigma Revealed’ on Sunday morning.
