Ben Law, from the people's favourite Grand Design episode, and author of The Woodland Way, The Woodland House, The Woodland Year, Roundwood Timber Framing and Woodsman: Living in a wood in the 21st Century, will be speaking at Hay Festival about a more sustainable apporach to buildings.
For 25 years Hay Festival has brought together writers from around the world to debate and share stories at its festival in the staggering beauty of the Welsh Borders. Hay celebrates great writing from poets and scientists, lyricists and comedians, novelists and environmentalists, and the power of great ideas to transform our way of thinking. We believe the exchange of views and meeting of minds that our festivals create inspire revelations personal, political and educational. Hay is, in Bill Clinton's phrase, 'The Woodstock of the mind'.
