Hay Winter Festival 2019

After the success of the Hay Summer Festival, we were asked provide equipment for the Hay Winter Festival 2019.


The Hay Winter Festival Weekend 2019 has been running for twenty years. It’s a smaller version of the main festival with events taking place in venues in the town. The 2019 Festival was the biggest and most high-profile yet.

The town’s atmospheric market square is a focus of festivities. On the Friday, the Hay Christmas lights are turned on, transforming the town into a winter wonderland brimming with festive cheer. Accompanied by carol singing, readings and evening entertainment.

On the Saturday, Hay Food Festival celebrates all that’s good about winter cooking. This included over 50 stalls showcasing the very best of local produce, from savoury to sweet.

The Hay Market Square transformed into a festive outdoor artisan market. With a wide range of traders offering a diverse collection of local arts and crafts. Get ahead with your Christmas shopping here.

Equipment we provided included:

Steeldeck Staging, Pipe & Drape, Rigging, Power and Distribution, MVS Hazers, Lighting and Event Lighting.

We also had help from Stage Sound Services who provided Sound and Video for the event.
