Clun Green Man

Shropshire festival (May)

Clun Green Man Festival

In pagan tradition, the Green Man clashes with the Frost Queen to end winter at this two-day festival in May at Clun, Shropshire, on the Welsh border. The Green Man is accompanied by the May Queen and after he wins the ‘battle’, they lead a parade to the grounds of ruined Clun Castle.

Green Man folklore features all around the region with carvings and sculptures of the leafy face found in churches and other buildings and pub signs. Clun’s Green Man is distinctive as he wears deer antlers.
