The Man Engine

The Largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in Britain, a brainchild of Goldentree productions, The Man Engine is a celebration of Cornish mining history and a demonstration of Cornish ingenuity and engineering.

Built originally to celebrate Cornwall’s Mining World Heritage status this is a project of Epic proportions. During The Man Engine’s first tour he was seen live by 149,000 people far exceeding his target of 7000. This huge mechanical Miner captivated all those who saw him. He is being ressurected and will be touring throughout the U K again throughout 2018

My involvement with the Man Engine is as the Soloist singer and puppeteer. What a treat. This is a physical job pulling ropes and being part of an amazing team of Artists, Engineers, Mechanics, Drivers, Designers and fabulous Volunteers.
