The Wye Valley River Festival reimagined for 2020

Spectacular events in an outstanding landscape, flowing through the Wye Valley AONB
21st September 2020 - 27th September 2020


The Wye Valley River Festival is normally two weeks of unpretentious fun, joy and spontaneity. It is an arts and environment festival shaped by the landscape of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and inspired by nature and culture featuring art and creativity that is relevant, current and firmly rooted in the landscape and local communities.

Unfortunately due to the COVID pandemic the 2020 festival due to be held in May had to be cancelled. But the organisers were keen to continue in some form this year and so this September join in with a week of the Wye Valley River Festival reimagined!

Each Festival has a theme, around which our activities and artists come together, raising awareness and interest in something we feel needs our care, support, or action. Our theme for 2020 is Time and our artists will be inspiring us to change the way we think about Time in all its many facets. We will be looking forward to the future as well as paying attention to the past and our rich natural and cultural heritage. We will consider how we use time, and how we can make sure we don’t run out of time in addressing the environmental and climate threats the world is facing. We showcase art which will hopefully provoke, inspire and challenge you. Above all we want to have fun and celebrate the very special landscape we are lucky enough to live and work in.
