Elan Valley Trail, Rhayader

Celebrate the beauty of our Celtic Rainforests!

This free to attend, one day fair includes a craft and food fair with local producers, information stalls with local charities and organisations. There will also be the chance to take part in a guided walk around Cnwch Woods, and forest bathing & yoga.

The Celtic Rainforest Project is a seven year project funded by Natura 2000 and Life, and aims to restore the fragmented areas of the Celtic Rainforests that, in the Elan Valley, are populated with Atlantic Sessile Oak, itself caring for important mosses, lichens and ferns.

Come and enjoy:

Craft and Food Fair

Peruse some of our local producers’ work including artisan chocolates, jewellery, ceramics, teas and more.

Forest Bathing and Yoga

Join Gabrielle as she guides you through some Gentle Yoga Movement and Forest Bathing in our ancient Celtic woodlands. Connect to your body and to the woods. Please dress for the weather that day, bring water and optional blanket/small cushion to sit on. For more information please email Gabrielle at: g.coope@hotmail.co.uk
