This May Bank Holiday weekend, Green Man Festival is taking a little piece of Wales to London’s King’s Cross. Held in the Brecon Beacons every year for over 10 years, the festival is once again celebrating its smaller counterpart, the five day mini-festival Courtyard, by taking all the usual Green Man fun to England’s capital.

So far, the line-up includes country-rock crooners, Pinegrove, Sweden’s best exports and Green Man favourites Dungen, and the brilliantly witty Dutch Uncles. Huw Stephens, of Radio 1 fame, will be on the decks and you will be able to find the founding member of The Coral , Bill Ryder-Jones, on Saturday. Gordi, Hannah Peel and Slug are all set to perform and there are loads more acts still to be announced.

It is not only music that’s on show. Courtyard is showcasing the best food and drink Wales has to offer. There will be an enormous 140+ Welsh ales and ciders to choose from over the course of the weekend. With drinks on offer from the likes of Tiny Rebel, Brecon Brewing and Wrexham Lager, plus all the favourites you find each year at Green Man, there will certainly be something to tickle the tastebuds.

Revellers can also enjoy a selection of Welsh street food. The Grazing Shed will be serving up their super tidy burgers, The Bearded Taco are bringing some international flavour, served on hand-made corn tortillas, and Ffwarnes will be there to dish up delicious stone-baked pizza all weekend.

Plus they will be throwing a daily Twmpath, or Welsh ceilidh (dancing) for those who don’t know, to get everyone in the spirit. Courtyard promises to be a cask-conditioned brew of Green Man’s best elements; beer, music and Wales.

Courtyard runs from Thursday 11 - Monday 29 May. You can find tickets here.

Green Man Festival returns for 17 - 20 August 2017. Tickets are now on sale here.
