Lift The River
Friends of The Upper Wye invite you to a day of music, poetry, workshops and exhibitions at Hay Castle - please come along to help us #LiftTheRiver. Free event. Everybody welcome. Local food and drink. Activities for children.
Starting at 12 noon with a Declaration on the state of the river from the Castle Steps followed by an afternoon of poetry, music and performance culminating in a solutions stage where speakers will lay out a vision for protecting the Wye. This family-friendly event will include an exhibition of creative 'river samples' and an opportunity to learn more about the citizen scientists testing the river twice weekly throughout the catchment.
Children can take part in a drumming workshop or write their own river poems and spells with writer Jean Atkin. The Centre for Material Thinking (Aberystwyth University) will be running a workshop on river sounds. Musicians from far and wide will serenade the crowd in the castle gardens and illuminating speakers will lay out the crisis and its solutions.
So come and spend the day in Hay! Let's imagine together a future for this precious river.
