Pictured in an open mussel shell at the Deugh river, Nova presented this year’s theme in a Birth of Venus-inspired homage to the endangered freshwater mussel.

Festival-goers are encouraged to join in with the theme by dressing up and getting creative with flags and props.

Co-producer, Katch Holmes said: “We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Knockengorroch with this year’s theme inspired by our river’s name, meaning ‘Black Deva’.
