The Man Engine at Geevor Tin Mine

It was indeed a profound experience to see the Man Engine puppet created to mark the anniversary of the Cornish Mining Heritage. This fabulous spectacle attracted an audience of 7000 providing us with a comfortable and clear view of the performance.

The chanting from the audience as the Man Engine rose was powerfully evocative and as you will see in the video below. At this event they included the names of the miners who had passed as the Man Engine came to life, a significant and emotional moment that will always be remembered.
