Bradda Mines talk returns to Erin Arts Centre

Event hopes to take attendees 'Deep inside Bradda Mines'

Erin Arts Centre is to host a talk on the Bradda Mines next month.

It follows huge interest in the presentation, which was first staged in March last year.

‘Deep Inside Bradda Mines’ sold out in under two weeks.

Peter Geddes, the founder of the Laxey Mines Research Group, will therefore bring the talk back this season.

Rushen Heritage Trust Coordinator John Quirk said: "This is our fifth season of talks, with six in each season, and it’s fair to say that Peter’s talk proved to be one of our most popular.

"We have sold out on many occasions, but never as quickly, and we had to turn people away on the night who had turned up on the off chance of getting a ticket. If you missed out last year, be sure to get your tickets quickly this time around!

"It’s a wonderful talk, with Peter delving into some of the history of Bradda Mines, and showing fascinating photographs of the mines today, and discussing the work that the Laxey Mines Research Group has been doing over the last five years."

The 'Deep Inside Bradda Mines' talk will take place at 7.30pm on Monday 4 March at Erin Arts Centre in Port Erin.

Tickets cost £6 – or £5 for Friends of Rushen Heritage Trust – and are available online or from Erin Arts Centre, Bridge Bookshop and Rushen Heritage Centre in Port Erin.
