Reasons to Visit the DeanWye at Half Term: 23 – 29 Oct 2017

It’s Half Term Week and we have lots and lots of exciting and unusual events to enjoy as we head towards the end of October.

For the children, holiday activities and Halloween themed events, for the adults, exhibitions, comedy nights, culture events and walks. For the family, Thomas the Tank Engine, pumpkin trails and carving – all to be found in our wonderful region on the England/Wales border around Gloucestershire, Monmouthshire and Herefordshire.

Whatever the weather may be, and whatever the time of year, you’ll find something to do in the #DeanWye area.

If you can’t make it this week, have a look at our What’s On page for ideas for next time.
