On Tuesday 29th May 2018 from 11:00-16:00 join East Pool Mine for one of their biggest events of the year; Steam Day!

The annual celebration of steam will see some staff and volunteers in period costume. You can even join in and wear a Miner or Bal-Maiden costume, dress as a Steam Punk, Victorian Lady or Gentleman and learn all about the history of the people who wore those outfits.

Take a ride behind a scale traction engine and see the replica Puffing Devil in steam. There will be working steam models on display as well as card model making.

The Trevithick Tuesday STEM event will be running all day in the Boiler House. A day of science and craft based activities inspired by Cornish mining heritage.

And to top it all off refreshments and local cake will be available in the marquee.
