Holiday fun at East Pool Mine

Students looking for something to do over the summer holidays are being told about activities at East Pool Mine.

The site will be holding Trevithick Tuesdays on July 31 and August 14, 21 and 28. It will be a family day of science and craft based activities. People will be able to  learn about giant steam engines, have a go at making a goose feather fuse, giant bubbles, electro-magnets and try the Great Egg Drop Challenge.

A spokesperson for East Pool Mine said: “New for 2018 is our social history activities Rag Rug Making and Make your own Croust Bag on a vintage sewing machine just like the women of the 19th Century.”
