Green Man Festival embraces Future Generations

Kid’s Areas are so last season… all hail the Future Generations!

Future Generations (formerly the Kids Area) is Green Man’s all-new adult-free adventure zone, exclusively designed for young people of all shapes and sizes under the age of 18.

From toddlers to teens and everyone in between, there’s never a dull moment with tonnes of cool stuff to explore across six exciting activity areas!

Join the circus, learn to DJ, be part of a film crew, create amazing animations, make monster hand puppets or hone your music production skills using the very latest computer software!
