At BBC Music Introducing in Hereford & Worcester, we support the very best new music from across the region. Since 2005 we’ve broadcast more than a thousand sessions, helping to showcase some of our area’s most talented musicians. We’ve handpicked some of our favourite acts to join us on stage at Hay. These artists didn’t even know they were being considered – and we hope this inspires people to keep sending in their music, because we really do listen to everything. bbc.co.uk/introhw These sessions will be broadcast throughout June on BBC Hereford & Worcester on Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 6pm.

Bill Bailey

Larks in Transit Tour A compendium of travellers’ tales and the general shenanigans of 20 years as a travelling comedian. With musical virtuosity, surreal tangents and trademark intelligence, Bill Bailey tackles politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness. Plus, he fashions a symphony from a ringtone, tells the real story of Old McDonald and reimagines the Stars and Stripes. Two decades of touring larks from a comic described by the Daily Telegraph as “the brainiest comic of his generation”. “Joyous, playful, effortlessly funny” – Time Out. Sponsored by RSPB

Recital by Candlelight The guitarist plays a meditative late-night concert featuring music by Robert Schumann, Agustin Barrios, Graeme Koenhe, John Dowland and Roland Dyens.

9.45pm [121] 9.45pm HAY FESTIVAL FOUNDATION STAGE £8

Natalie Haynes

Troy Story The devastating consequences of the fall of Troy stretch from Mount Olympus to Mount Ida, from the citadel of Troy to the distant Greek islands, and across the oceans and sky in between. These are the stories of the women embroiled in that legendary war and its terrible aftermath, as well as the feud and the fatal decisions that started it all. With wit and humour, stand-up comedian, Radio 4 broadcaster and classicist Natalie Haynes brings the story of the Trojan War to life from an all-female perspective, giving voices to the women, girls and goddesses who, for so long, have been silent.
