South Wales is one of the UK’s most significant mining heritage locations, with iron, copper and coal forming the heart of the Valleys for hundreds of years.
And in 2018, the whole nation is invited to celebrate and commemorate this industrial history with a visit from the now-iconic Man Engine.
The giant miner will visit eight of south Wales’s most important industrial heritage locations for a week of celebrations from 08 – 12 April 2018, animated by a team of more than a dozen ‘miners’
The Welsh visit forms part of the Man Engine’s 2018 Resurrection Tour, which will see the 11.2m tall puppet steam across some of the UK’s most significant mining heritage sites, including locations in Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Yorkshire, Shropshire and Derbyshire.
The tour will culminate on 12 April, with nostalgic displays at the National Waterfront Museum Swansea, a city parade and an evening finale at the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks.
Further information and tickets to witness the week of spectacles will be released via the Man Engine website in January.
