 Something to look forward to:




The Man Engine is coming back.

 The Might Man Engine is kicking off his much-anticipated 2018 Resurrection Tour right here at Geevor Tin Mine 

The Man Engine, powered by Volvo, steamed the length of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site last summer, unearthing a deep lode of passion and pride. Now, the colossal feat of engineering is set for his Resurrection Tour across Cornwall and Devon, before he drives further into Somerset, South Wales, Yorkshire, Shropshire and Derbyshire.
Kicking the whole tour off, on Saturday 31st March 2018, The Man Engine will re-appear where he was last seen: right here at Geevor Tin Mine. This year there will be two different events, namely the Afternooner Ceremony at 2pm [Gates open 12pm; Ceremony ends 2:45pm; site close 4pm] and the brand new Afterdarker Ceremony taking place at 8:30pm [Gates open 6:30pm; Ceremony ends 9:15pm; site close 10pm]. 
The ‘Afternooner’ will give families and Big Kids the chance to really get to know their favourite giant miner: there will be an industrial-scale feast of fun and frolics. The ‘Afterdarker’ promises an edgier explosive experience. Suffice to say, it will be a cranked up experience of what held everyone spellbound last year.
