Hereford River Carnival
Welcome to Hereford River Carnival

Dance Stage



A massive welcome to the virtual River Carnival


We’re so sad we can’t be with you in the streets and on the Wye this year. We’ll see you in 2021.


But we hope we have created the next best thing.


A virtual Carnival featuring online performances from some Carnival favourites and some new friends.


Click on a stage and scroll on through and take a look at what you fancy. Just like you’d do on River Carnival Day.




The Dance Central stage is always one of the most popular at the River Carnival. Who knew there were so many different groups and styles in this most creative of counties?
Here we showcase what some of our friends have done both before & during lockdown.
