As the August Bank Holiday comes nearer, there are lots of reasons to visit the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean this week - and on the Bank Holiday Weekend, including activities for kids, exhibitions, art, plays, Thomas the Tank Engine, plus the Forest of Dean Mummers!

Whatever the weather may be, you'll find something to do in the #DeanWye area.
