Geevor Tin Mine Best Days Out Cornwall

Bringing Cornish mining stories to life on the Tin Coast

Posted in News by Lauren Webb on 16th February 2022

Visitors to Geevor Tin Mine Museum are now able to take part in an interactive family adventure trail, Kevrenna, bringing real-life local stories to life on the Tin Coast.


Performed by well-known local actors and produced with Cornish theatre company Cousin Jack’s, these short films feature stories that bring the visitors current location to life. After each clip, families will have to answer a question or take a nature photo to win a golden bezant.

Kevrenna (meaning ‘to share’ in Cornish), aims to engage children and their families with important local stories about the Tin Coast and connect them to its heritage whilst they’re out and about in nature.

Cousin Jack’s, a community interest theatre company, developed an interactive family adventure trail with Cornish tech firm Data Duopoly, bringing real-life local stories to life on the Tin Coast.

Kevrenna (meaning ‘to share’ in Cornish), aims to engage children and their families with important local stories about the Tin Coast and connect them to its heritage whilst they’re out and about in nature.

The interactive trail can be accessed via the Tin Coast app, XplorTINCOAST, commissioned by the Tin Coast Partnership and developed by Cornwall software developer, Data Duopoly.

Kevrenna has been designed as a 40min circular walk between Geevor Tin Mine and Levant which starts from Geevor’s car park. Using GPS and gamification, users follow directional arrows to unlock micro-films (around 1 minute) when certain points are reached along the trail.

Guy Watson, Cousin Jack’s Artistic Director, said: “Developing Kevrenna has been such an adventure and nothing like anything we’ve done as a theatre company before! We loved working with the local community and encouraging young people to decide on which important local stories should be turned into micro-films. We love the results and I know so many families are going to have fun with this interactive trail!”

Erin Morris, a co-founder of Data Duopoly, added: “It has been fantastic to work with Guy and the team at Cousin Jack’s to create this exciting, gamified trail. Supporting local areas and businesses using creative tech solutions is at the heart of what we do. We can’t wait to see families using the XplorTINCOAST app and taking part in the Kevrenna trail!”

30 Tin Coast stories were voted on by local schools and residents in west Cornwall to determine which should be the 8 now featured in Kevrenna.

Designed for families with children aged 5-11, Kevrenna adventurers must collect 15 golden bezants by the time they get back to the Geevor mine car park.
