People at a festival

Thu 18 Aug - Sun 21 Aug 2016

This year the Green Man festival returns to the Brecon Beacons in Wales from 18-21 August.

This intimate festival in the Black Mountains hosts several entertainment areas, with music, comedy, poetry, literature, art and science all taking to different stages over the four days.

Pop over to the buffeted by butterflies Met Office stand in Einstein's Garden, where you can chat to some of our scientists, and all ages can get hands on with weather and climate related experiments. Find out about hurricanes, chaos and the flap of an insect's wing... Met Office folk will be on hand to chat about the science and technology that helps us understand the past and plan for the future, as well as helping younger visitors with hands-on activities, including our ever-popular cloud in a bottle experiment.

Some of the headline acts this year include:
