The Man Engine sends out a huge Merastahwi or many thanks to all those who helped and supported him on his amazing country wide tour.

Golden Tree Productions and the Man Engine crew announced after months of travelling the UK to numerous industrial sites and venues the Man Engine is back home and off for a well-deserved lie down.

The Man Engine which was commissioned by the Cornwall and West Devon World Heritage Site team to celebrate the Tinth anniversary of the site’s UNESCO inscription in 2016. This year, in March he spectacularly rose again at Geevor Tin Mine to start The Man Engine Resurrection Tour. This time he ventured out of the West Country for the very first time and after visiting Tavistock and Radstock he went all the way to Wales. He was welcomed by crowds of supporters who got to experience not only a day time show but also an evening addition filled with pyrotechnics and excellent theatrics telling the Cornish mining story and exploring our strong links with Wales.

The show didn’t stop there, over the past months he has been to Ironbridge, Elsecar, Wentworth Woodhouse and Durham. Pulling huge crowds at each location The Man Engine not only shared the Cornish and Devon Mining story with the country but helped to highlight the UK Diaspora of Cornish miners, encouraging people all over the UK to discover their own Cornish mining heritage.

With the support shown and the success of the tour there are big plans for his next outing - wherever will he go next? Watch this space…
