Ross-on-Wye reinvents itself

Ross-on-Wye will be a Museum without Walls

Ross-on-Wye is to host a festival of music, drama, children’s theatre and virtual reality between 15-17 March 2019 as a prelude to more ambitious plans. Organiser createROSS hopes ‘Ross Reinvented’ will be the start of a much more substantial project. The festival opens on Friday 15th March with a soul party featuring live band - The Mighty Pledge.

Saturday sees the arrival of The Orchestra of The Swan - a classical treat and Kids Sunday features the brilliant puppets of Noisy Oyster in a circus performance.

There will also be performances of Hush Now, Hidden Women in the town centre on Saturday. The festival ends on Sunday afternoon with the launch of a virtual reality project, the reinstatement of John Kyrle's Fountain up on the Prospect.

This is the first stage of what is hoped will be an ongoing town-wide project: the Museum Without Walls.
