Celebrate St David’s Day with the guys at Green Man festival on Saturday, as the team decamps from the Black Mountains to London’s Cecil Sharpe House for their annual Hwyl. The home of the English folk dance and song society, Cecil Sharpe House is an ideal location for the Green Man’s unique blend of alternative, stimulating and original music and art programme, and as a taster for the main event is more than appetising.
It’s all about celebrating the magic of Wales, with a wonderful mix of new and traditional Welsh Arts, including comedians Elis James and Mike Bubbins, arts installations, poetry from Owen Sheers, Patience Agbabi and Haf Davies, theatre, a traditional Welsh Twmpath and workshops, all accompanied by tasty Welsh ales and ciders and Welsh food. Music comes from Teleman, Sweet Baboo, Stanley Brinks, Georgia Ruth, and Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, alongside a traditional Welsh Twmpath. If that’s not enough the Dylan Thomas Book Bus will be on site, and perfomances from Tangerino Circus running through out the day.
It’s a great taster for August’s festival, where St Vincent, Hot Chip, Viet Cong, Goat and The Wave Pictures have all been confirmed to play.
