News and updates about the proposed Wye Valley River Festival May 2014
The Wye Valley River Festival will be held over three weeks from Hay on Wye on the 26/27 April through to Chepstow on May 18th 2014 . The Festival will involve heritage and arts events flowing down the river. This will be a partnership festival under the adminstration of the Wye Valley Preservation Trust and organised by the Wye Valley AONB Unit.
Kim Tilbrook and Phillippa Haynes have been employed as our new Event Project Co-ordinators and will be visiting groups up and down the Wye Valley to establish the Heitage flow through events. They have both been involved in the organisation of a variety of big festivals including the Bristol Harbour Festival
Jon Beedell and Richard Headon from Desperate Men will be looking at the arts provision for the festival. Log onto their website here or see the work done for the Severn Project
Meetings are being held up and down the Wye Valley at Hereford, Ross on Wye, Lydbrook, Monmouth and Chepstow and the festival planning is now well underway.
We need to involve all the organisations, associations, parish, town and community councils in designing a festival that will be for and about the towns and villages along the Wye.
If you want your organisation to become involved then contact Wye Valley AONB Information Officer Nikki Moore by emailing email@example.com
