The Wye Valley River Festival events have now been seen and enjoyed at Hereford, Ross on Wye, Bishopswood and Lydbrook over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Thousands of people have enjoyed the watery antics of the Water Ones, the fire and flame and the Wye Serai. Torch processions welcomed the fire to our Giant Samovar at Hereford, watched the illumintaed Heron glide up the River Wye, listened to wonderful music from choirs and musicians and investigated our Caravans of Hydrosities and Curiosities; Caravan of Fact and Wonder and the Caravan of Myths and Legends.
If you have enjoyed any of our events so far please help us by taking the online survey through Survey Monkey here, send us your photographs and comments via our Facebook page or just email us. We will be adding to these events as we progress through the River Festival.
By the way don't forget to get your passport from Mr Cherry and get it stamped at all our events
