The Workhouse is an upbeat and eclectic three-day music and entertainment festival. The event is totally independent, not-for-profit and a celebration of everything alternative.
Drawing an intimate crowd of people, including families, it can be as energetic or as chilled out as you want it to be and everything is within five minutes walk of your tent.
Set in beautiful surroundings near Llanfyllin, Mid-Wales, over eight venues, there will be everything from well known bands such as The Blockheads and The Holloways on the Saddlesan Main Stage, DJs throughout the day in the Electronik Boutique, Acoustic music on the covered stage, young welsh talent on the Courtyard stage, Cabaret, a whole Kids’ Domain with workshops, circus and theatre, chilled out Green Crafts, Healing area and a custom made Cinema showing home grown and world cinema, all sorts of bizarre and amazing walkabout acts, 3 bars serving locally produced drinks and the pick of yummy local caterers.
Winner of a Greener Festival Award in 2008, Greener Festivals have this to say about Workhouse: All profit from the Workhouse Festival goes to support the Llanfyllin Workhouse project – a charitable environmentally sustainable community project. Workhouse prioritises local traders to reduce food miles and makes every effort to re-use or recycle materials and the festival’s power is sourced from ecotricity and from renewable sources.
