Protest! at Hay Festival

4 Jun 2017 - 2.30PM - 8.30

When does a riot become a revolution? When does a demonstration of dissent tip over into a moment of unstoppable political change? Ra Page’s inspiring new collection of stories matches fiction writers with great moments of history: Rhydderch writes of the Welsh Language protests of 1979; Cottrell-Boyce reimagines Venner’s Rising of 1661; Newland writes up The Poll Tax Riots of 1990.

Guest authors: Courttia Newland, Francesca Rhydderch and Frank Cottrell Boyce

Venue: Good Energy Stage
Time: 2:30pm
