Society weekend in Hay-on-Wye
Friday 22nd Apr - Sunday 24th Apr
Friday 22 to Sunday 24 April 2022
Hay-on-Wye in the Welsh Borders is widely regarded as the literary capital of the country thanks to its thirty-plus book shops and its famous book festival, held each May. We invite Society members to join us there for a social weekend of lectures, convivial company and an optional tour of Welsh castles.
The weekend will be based at the Baskerville Hall Hotel, Clyro Court, Hay-on-Wye, Powys, HR3 5LE, two – miles from the centre of Hay. Baskerville Hall and a local legend were the inspiration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write his famous Sherlock Holmes story, The Hound of the Baskervilles. The hotel offers a variety of accommodation options, from en-suite double and single rooms to bunk-house beds, and camping in the grounds, all at reasonable prices.
We will have five speakers, an informal dinner on the Saturday evening, and an optional tour of Welsh castles on the Sunday.
