COME WITH US AS THE LITTLE FOLK LEAD US INTO A LAND OF LEGEND AND MYSTERY...

Packed with colourful creations and tree-swinging tykes, we have adventures awaiting the tiniest explorers to the most intrepid 12-year-olds. Perfectly plonked next door to the family camping. Here's a first look at what's instore in our land of legends. Don't forget to get in uniform for the Little Folk parade Sunday 20th around 4.30pm!

Moona Craft: Create potions whilst learning the myth of The Lady of Llyn-Y-Fan-Fach.

Each session is unique and engages songs, rhymes, shakers, bubbles, parachutes, puppets and sensory surprises to encourage confidence and learning, expression and creativity in a fun light-hearted way for babies and their carers. I can promise the first-time festival goers will have a magical time.

Toddle Bops: Toddle Bops can only be described as music mayhem for kids under 5! Each session is unique and fun, as with guitar in hand I lead the group through a 45 minute session of singing, dancing, rhyme and silliness! I can promise big grins, giggles and grooving all round with a feast of homemade props such as sensory shakers, puppets, steering wheels, rainbow ribbons, morris dancing scarves, stepping stones, parachutes and all sorts of creative craziness to spark little ones imaginations!

The Flying Seagulls: Back with their own unique madcap style of entertainment The Seagulls will be back with music, circus and the kids comedy corner.

Explore an area

Mountain’s Foot

Our headline arena, nestled at the foot of the Black Mountains’ mysterious peaks, plays host to the Mountain Stage. A natural amphitheatre, with a breathtaking backdrop and not a bad seat in the house.

Far Out

Far Out is for those who thrive in the bustling and off-kilter. Our second bigtop housed stage borrows the name, with acts encapsulating the nature of the area; get down the front and be blown away. After dark - frisky, freaky, mischievous delights abound, we turn the volume up, dim the lights and let things loose.

Walled Garden

An intimate grassy courtyard, The Walled Garden is a festival of its own. Time has a tendency to drift once you’ve stepped through this hidden hole in the wall: planted inside its history-steeped, flint stone walls, whole days sneak past when you were just meant to be passing through.

Einstein's Garden

Calling all time travellers, music lovers and aspiring astronauts!Laugh, learn and gawp at something strange. You won’t find anything quite like it at another UK festival.

Nature Nurture

Nature Nurture is a quiet corner of health and holistic rejuvenation. Tucked away in a peaceful glade of Welsh oaks, verdant tranquility awaits anyone who seeks it. Stretch, unwind and set free those final few drops of stress.

The Courtyard

Slap bang in the middle of Green Man, The Courtyard is a gothic stable block made from locally quarried flint. Home to our wide selection of Welsh ales and ciders created by independent brewers. Pull up a bench, order some pints and settle down to make some new friends.

Or be entertained by an incredible line-up of talented comedians on the Last Laugh comedy stage who will make laugh until the early hours.

Fortune Falls

A shamanic hideaway for the creative and cultured. With Green Man’s history of discovering new stars, it’s very likely you you will be discovering a few right here in our quiet, tranquil pond lined valley.
