The Man Engine: Resurrection Tour

31 Mar 2018 to 6 Apr 2018
Back in summer 2016, a remarkable phenomenon captured hearts and souls across Cornwall. The largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in Britain steamed the length of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

Now the Big Boy is back! On Saturday 31st March 2018, the Man Engine, will re-appear where he was last seen: at Geevor Tin Mine in the ultimate West. Then he heads East; on Easter Sunday 1st April he will be at Heartlands. On Easter Monday 2nd April he will visit Cornwall’s premier events location, the Royal Cornwall Showground. He then crosses the Tamar to Tavistock on Tues 3rd April, before he drives further, into Somerset, South Wales and up to the North of England.

The creator of the Man Engine, Will Coleman, explained the difference between the new daytime and night-time events which will take place at each of the Cornish venues saying: “Our ‘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 including white-hot pyrotechnics - sparks will fly. Suffice to say, we are cranking up the experience that held everyone spellbound last year and can’t wait for people across Cornwall to witness his new incarnation!”

PLEASE NOTE: The LOSTWITHIEL venue on April 2nd is now taking place at the ROYAL CORNWALL SHOWGROUND due to waterlogged ground at Lostwithiel.
