The festival is considered one of the best British cultural events of the year.

It welcomes "big ideas from people who think differently to ourselves and champion the need to open minds".

Attending this year are authors like Bill Bryson, Roddy Doyle, Philip Pullman and Tom Stoppard. Other international speakers include the President of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed and British Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg.

The festival is known for its relaxed atmosphere and stimulating conversations. Festival-goers may enjoy chats with authors or get stuck-in with debates about the future of books.

Dan will be speaking to one of the lawyers responsible for representing the families of those who died at Bloody Sunday in Northern Ireland in 1972. He'll also have an interview with British columnist, Peter Hitchens on Christianity - and more.

So join us if you can tomorrow on World Update to hear some of the many interesting speakers from the Hay on Wye book festival.
