Trivia

Since 2003 it has grown from a one day 300 capacity event to become one of the UK's most popular medium size festivals. In 2010 it won the best medium sized festival award. The festival has carved a niche as a non-corporate and ethically-minded festival.

A Green Man is a sculpture, drawing, or other representation of a face surrounded by or made from leaves. The festival has a large statue of a Green Man which is burnt at the end of the weekend.
