The Man Engine

The Man Engine visits South Yorkshire!

WE Great Place brought the colossal Man Engine to Barnsley and Rotherham during June 2018.

The visit, which formed part of the Man Engine 2018 Resurrection Tour, was a real spectacle and drew crowds from far and wide to both Elsecar Heritage Centre and Wentworth Woodhouse on the 23rd and 24th of June 2018.

The Man Engine Afterdarker was hosted at Elsecar Heritage Centre pulled crowds from far and wide with its street party feel and received national broadcast coverage.

The Man Engine Afternooner at Wentworth Woodhouse was a family focussed spectacular with a traditional 1940’s picnic theme. The festival style event was packed full of food, excellent craft and artisan producers, entertainment and family fun.

These special events drew in excess of 5000 visitors across both sites and their feedback was phenomenal.

Loved the afterdarker event. My little one who is 6 thought it was brilliant one. So pleased we came along.
