Come along to the beautiful Ynysangharad War Memorial Park and witness the Man Engine – the largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in Britain. Watch as he wakes, at 11.2m towering over all.
The Man Engine will be greeted with the handover of a gift. This gift symbolises the chains and anchors produced and supplied by Brown Lenox Chainworks using Rhondda coal, which furnished the Admiralty ad famous passenger liners including the Queen Mary and QE2. There will be plenty to keep you entertained with a large fun fair, displays and stalls.
