5th – 20th May 2018

The Wye Valley River Festival is back in 2018, bigger and better than ever. It will be flowing through the riverside towns and villages of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), as artists and communities celebrate the river and its wonderful woodlands in our magnificent arts and environment festival.

Waiting for the moon

We’ll be waiting for the moon, which joins the Festival party on 14th May – 20th May at Tintern Abbey. The magical Museum of the Moon, created by international artist Luke Jerram, will be one of the highlights of the Festival. As night falls, a seven metre wide fusion of lunar imagery and moonlight, suspended high in the ruins of the Abbey, will be illuminated.

If you go down to the woods today

Woods and trees are the theme for this year’s Festival and our artists will be challenging us to think about the vital role they play in our world.
