Video Highlights 2018

Recapture the joy of the 2018 Wye Valley River Festival with our video shorts, including Monmouth’s Woodland Assembly and Fire Parade, the Wild Wye Swim and Luke Jerram’s ‘Museum of the Moon’ at Tintern Abbey. If you wondered how the moon got there this ‘behind the scenes’ video shows how we did it, thanks to some amazing rope access guys! 

We we will be back, flowing through the Wye Valley AONB, for another River Festival 2nd – 17th May 2020. 


Waiting for the moon


The magical Museum of the Moon, created by international artist Luke Jerram, was one of the highlights of the Wye Valley River Festival 2018. As night fell a seven metre wide fusion of lunar imagery and moonlight, suspended high in the ruins of the Abbey enthralled visitors. Join us in 2020 for another night time arty adventure at Tintern Abbey.


If you go down to the woods

Woods and trees were the theme for the 2018 Festival, with artists challenging us to think about the vital role they play in our world.
