Festival Description

The Green Man Festival is an annual event held at Glanusk Park in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Estate site is unique to the Festival, and we will once again be using the Walled Garden for the Children’s area, the Stable Courtyard for the Café stage and the tiered lawns for the natural arena of the Main Stage.

The Cinema, DJ and Literature tents will all again be featured, while the green field and retreat areas will both be extended offering massage and alternative therapies. The festival will also be offering a wider selection of delicious local food and cuisines from around the world. There will be fresh seafood curries, smoked delicacies from the on-site smokery and a stall run by the local Cwmdu School.

Festival Dates August 15 - 18, 2013
