Past Events

Events have helped people, both locally and further afield, to gain a better understanding of an industry that has shaped the northern part of the county. They have provided mining enthusiasts with an opportunity to pass on information and knowledge on a topic that they themselves have spent their lives studying. Events that have been organised include Heritage weekends, community events and a demonstration weekend. With a number of projects currently being developed, further events to promote these successful projects will be organised in the final year of Spirit of the Miners.

There are also many other events going on in Ceredigion throughout the year. Follow this link here for a comprehensive list of county wide events.
