We’re delighted to announce that the celebrated Library of Mistakes will be in residence at Hay Castle, 1st-3rd March 2024
Join historians, financial experts, investment sages for a wealth of wisdom, and enjoy a weekend of financial booms and busts, bubbles, swindles, panics and crashes.

A Weekend of Mistakes that offers you insights from the past - and some key lessons for your financial future!

An Edinburgh-based charity, the Library of Mistakes is dedicated to learning from the lessons of financial history – to better inform the present and help navigate the future. Since opening in 2014, it has developed from a specialist library to having an international following for its online events, webinars and podcasts on both historic and contemporary issues.
