Nature & Science at BTT

Do you want to help people re-connect with nature and understand how that can help protect the planet?

Between The Trees is a music festival with a difference; we have a unique theme of nature & science and it’s all takes place in the middle of a natural woodland by the sea at Merthyr Mawr, South Wales.

We not only want you to enjoy original music and create beautiful art in natural surroundings, but we also want you to experience and explore different aspects of nature & science in our dedicated science area called “Wallace’s Woodland

Through biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, and astronomy, we seek to understand how the world and universe around us works and how best we can care for the planet. We will introduce you to the indigenous animals, plants and insects of this amazing nature reserve. We will explore the microscopic world of the forest with microscopes and at night view the night sky with telescopes.

We will have films, talks and discussions on conservation and biodiversity as well as guided walks through the forest.

Would you like to get involved in science at BTT? We are seeking enthusiastic people, from all walks of life, who have an interest in nature and science and are a keen to bring their expertise and knowledge to BTT to engage the public in fun, science-based activities.

We would like you to follow a “nature” theme and encourage the use of natural resources that can found in the woodland, however we are happy to receive  applications from any of the natural science disciplines.

Festival dates: 30, 31 Aug – 1 Sept.
