Details

Organisers of unique events in Llanwrtyd Wells, including the World Bog Snorkelling Championship and Man v Horse.

Man v Horse: The event began in June 1980 following a chat over a pint (or three) in the back bar of the Neuadd Arms Hotel. The then Landlord, Gordon Green, overheard two men discussing the relative merits of men and horses running over mountainous terrain. The enterprising Gordon, never one to miss an opportunity to promote Llanwrtyd Wells and improve business at his hotel, decided to put it to the test. And so began Green Events and its first, longest standing and now internationally acclaimed event, Man v Horse.

The World Bog Snorkelling Championships - an event that Lonely Planet described as one of the top 50 "must do" things from around the world - are held every year, with participants from around the world. The event takes place at Waen Rhydd bog on the outskirts of Llanwrtyd Wells. There are food and drink stalls, crafts, a bouncy castle, live music and a real ale and cider bar on the site, so it's a great day out even if you don't fancy taking the plunge.

Please see the green events website for details of these events and MANY more taking place throughout the year in Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, Mid Wales.
