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.

This year there is an all new Main Stage, a larger outdoor saddlespan stage from Roustabout. Returning will be the Cabaret Tent, fully equipped as with a cocktail bar, and the Electronik Boutique (Dance Tent). As does The Green Crafts, and Healing Area.

The Courtyard stage is packed full of local youth talent. Families, younger festival goers or just those with a taste for the sillier side of life will enjoy the Kid's Arena. Based around the circus tent it's full of creative workshops, puppets, stories, music, silly science, big games and lots of colourful characters to while away the afternoons with.

The custom made cinema will be screening a carefully selected variety of shorts, feature and documentary films from around the globe. The cinema offers a portal into new worlds from some of the best young, up and coming and radical film making talent.

There'll be more information when available.
