Grab a Festival Passport (as you’ll be criss-crossing the border between England and Wales) and follow our Festival down the Wye Valley in glorious bluebell-laden, new leaf, lime green Spring time. You can pick up a passport from the Wye Valley AONB stand at each festival site, or order one by emailing information@wyevalleyaonb.org.uk.

During the Wye Valley River Festival, Mr Cherry will be appearing and disappearing, without warning, so watch out for him and be ready to get your Festival Passport stamped with a very unique ‘Cherry’ stamp which will put you in the running for splendid prizes. Stamps on your River Festival Passport will put you in the running for some great family prizes including tickets to the Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo, the aMazing Hedge Puzzle, Wye Valley Warfare Laser-Ops and a tasting tour of Hillside Brewery. Make sure to get your passport stamped at each event you attend. Collect any three stamps to be entered into our free prize draw to win.

The River Festival Documenter and Passport Stamper Extraordinaire!

The ‘official stamper of River Festival Passports’ is Mr Cherry, so keep a look out for him at each festival location to get your Festival Passport stamped. You should be able to find him in his amazing ‘Document Tent’ at Symonds Yat, Lydbrook, Monmouth, Tintern and Llandogo and on the riverside in Ross on Wye. You can also get your passport stamped at the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty stand, but the person with the most ‘Mr Cherry’ stamps, with at least one stamp from England and Wales, will win our mystery prize! Send your completed passport to Wye Valley AONB, Hadnock Road, Monmouth NP25 3NG or hand it in to Mr Cherry or the AONB stand at the Festival.

As the official ‘River Festival Documenter’ Mr Cherry will be making films, taking photos, and generally documenting all manner of trees and people at the Festival. He is also looking for your films, photos and art of the 2018 River Festival and he is particularly interested in your films of trees.

Mr Cherry is the festival alter ego of performer William Wilding.
William has appeared in many guises over the years, ranging from his madcap persona ‘Woody Bop Muddy’, performing his musical based seat of the pants DJ show ‘Record Graveyard’, to co-founding and running the Street Theatre company ‘dotComedy’, which created and performed many strange and unusual theatre happenings.
