Hay Festival celebrates 25th anniversary
The Hay Literary Festival in Powys is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
In 1987 it was held in the town's primary school and sold 2,000 tickets.
But 25 years on it has become a global attraction selling out to quarter of a million people.
The annual mix of literature, politics, comedy and music is being held in Powys over 11 days and ends this weekend.
Over the years, it has attracted some of the biggest names, including former US President Bill Clinton and the ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.
