Monmouth Festival is just about ready to launch but as we run to the start it looks like we've lost a race, the Monmouth Rotary Club Bed Race. Due to circumstances beyond our control and the control of the organisers it is with deep regret that we have to advise you "It's not happening".
The bed race has been cancelled this year but we are as sure as we can be that it will make a welcome return next year. Our apologies for any disappointment this might cause. There are still plenty of things happening throughout Monmouth before the Carnival Procession - you can attend the Drumming Workshop, explore The Shire Hall, see inside the tower on Monnow Bridge or take part in the Aquathon and swim/run alongside the river Wye .
If you don’t fancy any of those things, we look forward to seeing you all for the start of the Carnival Procession at 2 o'clock on Sunday. See you there!
