Ross-on-Wye Unintentional Festival 2004

Paul Martinez at Ross-on-Wye Unintentional Festival 2003.

The Ross Unintentional Festival, which began in 2002 when the International Festival was cancelled is now into its third year. In 2002 the festival had a small budget of just 2,000 and needless to say, lots of favours were asked. The festival organizers would like to thank those who helped to make the event extremely successful.

With backing from 'Creative Industries' again this year, 'Arts Council England' and 'Tourism Enterprise' funding and the continuing support from sponsors and advertisers Ross Unintentional can only go from strength to strength.

This year the event begins two days after the International Festival, on the 15th August and will run parallel for eight days and carries on for a further eight!

The festival will culminate in a three day finale based at the Hope & Anchor which will run from Saturday 28th to Monday 30th August and with 20 plus bands on offer.

There will be a diverse range of entertainment this year, with the hip-shaking beats of Explosive Nzacomba, Tex Mex, Tequila Banditos, Los Squideros and Summer Bullets (formerly Judy Speedway) to name but a few. So why not come along and be entertained!

Looking for Treasure at Ross-on-Wye Baptist Church

If you are looking for something to entertain the children during the school holiday, every morning this week between 10 am and midday, Ross-on-Wye Baptist Church are holding a holiday club entitled, 'Xpedition Force' with a 'Looking for Treasure' theme.

Led by Sue Trevethan, approximately sixty children are expected to attend, taking part in games, quizzes, crafts, stories, singing and plays.

The children are split into groups for the different activities and pictured to the right are one of Monday's teams, 'The Violet Voyagers.'

All comers are welcome and when I went along to take the photograph, everybody seemed to be having a wonderful time.
