The Green Man Spring Party

Greenman When the folks behind The Green Man Festival tell you that it’s time to celebrate the coming of Spring, you’d better listen up. On 23rd and 24th March the festival returns to Baskerville Hall, for a Rite of Spring party, with 2 days of wine, witches and song in the Brecon Beacons.

On Friday 23rd, King Arthur Pendragon will perform the opening ceremony and raise the curtain on a feast of music and films, mystics and freaks, as the hotel becomes a circle of Equinox appreciation.

The music starts at 6.00pm on Friday and finishes at 6.00am on Sunday. In the Folkey Dokey bar, over 20 DJs will be performing, with live music in the Cinema to a background of rare and gothic film. In the Hallway, pagan puppetry looks at the roots of the green man, while the Literature Room explores the history of psychoactive mushroom use. The Hotel grounds play host to the twelve members of the Neighbourhood Witch, who invite you to join their seed planting rituals.

And when the music stops, take a stroll through the castled Hay-on-Wye, dine in a Country Inn, or follow the pilgrims’ trail to the monastic ruins of Llanthony Priory. Sounds brilliantly bonkers.  Further details, tickets and accommodation can be found at the website
