Green Man

Einstein's Garden

A playful collision of the inspiring and unexpected, where scientists and artists mingle. You could be the catalyst for all kinds of exciting new reactions, so step into the Garden and start exploring...

Every year thousands of you pass through the Garden and take a detour into the far reaches of the imagination. We’ve always been dedicated to nurturing your curiosity, and Einstein’s Garden is the unique result – making science and nature an inspiring part of your Green Man adventure.

Music, comedy and spoken word; innovative and fun presentations from scientists; walks, talks and interactive experiences. You’ll encounter them all here, across our three sustainably powered stages, and it’s a combination you won’t find anywhere else!

This year we’ll be working with our fantastic scientific partners to create more unique Einstein’s Garden experiences, thanks to the support of the Wellcome Trust, who’ve recognised Green Man’s commitment to celebrating the wonder of science. Join us for an eye-opening, mind-blowing weekend of discovery.
