People of all ages come to Green Man and whether you’re bringing the kids, teens, grandparents or the whole brood, there’s a host of activities and action that’ll keep them entertained from dawn ‘till dusk...
After a more slow-paced camping experience to nestle down in with your brood? Our Family Camping Fields offers exactly that, with nappy bins and a chilled vibe making the perfect place for your family to call home over the weekend.
You don’t need a special ticket to camp here, you just turn up and pitch your tent. No single or groups of adults will be permitted in the Family Campsite unless accompanied by children 16 or under.
Otherwise known as Little Folk, our Children’s Area caters for the tiniest of tots all the way through to the most intrepid 12-year-olds. It’s perfectly plonked next to the Family Camping Fields and is bursting with workshops, music and mischief. Don’t miss the Children’s Parade on Sunday afternoon, where the little folk parade everything they’ve made over the weekend through the festival site and in front on the Mountain Stage.
Also known as Somewhere, our Teenage Area is an action-packed place for 13-17 year olds. We’ve got DJ workshops, fire shows, filmmaking fun, T-shirt designed and loads more…
Einstein's Garden was the first science area at a UK fesitival, and is now seen as a leader in science engagement. World leading universities and research organisations tranfer their mega brain knowledge into over 100 mind blowing family-friendly performances, stretching from laughs, music and theatre, to walks, talks and interactive installations.
We run special yoga and capoeira sessions for kids, teens and families in Nature Nurture, which can be booked in advance.
The Cinedrome is in a lovely circus tent offers the most spell-bindings kids’ films from 10am, this is just the spot for a chilled morning.
Known as the The Settlement this area is hugely popular with families as its a lot of fun and incredibly good value for money. Come and camp from Monday 12th August before the festival starts extending your festival experience to a 7 day holiday in Wales. Settlers are incredibly friendly and it’s a great opportunity for your kids (and you) to befriend fellow Settler’s camped nearby. There’s plenty to do, including: workshops, guided walks, bike riding, canoeing, but mostly discover the mystical Welsh countryside, discover local pubs or book many of the rural outdoor pursuits the region is known for.
The Blue Car Park is the nearest parking to Family Camping. The Orange Car Park is about a 1,500 meter walk to Family Camping.
There is a festival shop on site where you can get essentials, and a chemist, outdoor clothing and grocery in Crickhowell, which you can walk to. If you want to drive there is a Waitrose and Aldi in Abergavenny for other goods.
