Cartagena's festival of ideas
The Hay Festival takes place in Cartagena over the last weekend of January boasting a glittering list of writers, philosophers, filmmakers and musicians during the four-day event.
Littered with Nobel laureates and a host of other brilliant minds from the world of food, film, art, music, dance and photography, the festival has established its reputation as the most worldly of Cartagena gatherings.
The festival runs over four days with presentations by more than 90 writers, film-makers, musicians, philosophers and chefs.
This year's stellar line-up includes worldly historians,Simon Jonathan Sebag Montefiore and Andrea Wulf and Man Booker Prize shortlister, Hisham Mater. As well as a host of international writers and intellectuals who are at the top of their game.
You can unlock the rest of the line-up and purchase tickets through the official Hay Festival website from December onwards.
Tickets are also on sale at designated sale points (branches of la Librería Nacional) and over the phone from the December onwards, and can be bought and collected from the festival box office at Teatro Adolfo Mejía.
