Hay Festival line up includes Ralph Fiennes and Rob Lowe

6th April 2011

Rob Lowe and Ralph Fiennes are among the A-list luminaries speaking at this year's Hay Festival.

The English Patient actor, Fiennes, will speak about Shakespeare's lesser-known works and Lowe, who has appeared on TV screens in the West Wing, will discuss his career and his love of reading.

They will be joined by a number of leading authors, including Man Booker Prize for Fiction winner Howard Jacobson, whose novel The Finkler Question has won widespread acclaim amongst critics and the public.

Nobel Laureate V.S. Naipaul, teen fiction author and ardent atheist Philip Pullman and BBC DJ Chris Evans will all be taking to the stage at the literary event.

The Hay Festival takes place between May 26th and June 5th and tickets will be made available to the general public at midnight April 11th.

BBC Radio 2 has launched a short story competition for children aged under 13 to coincide with the festival. The winners will have their 500-word masterpieces read out on air during Evans' Breakfast Show, which will be broadcasting live from the festival on June 3rd.
