It's a cracking time of year at A Welsh Coal Mining Experience


The ever-popular Easter Egg-stravaganza event is back! This year the event takes place on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th April so come along for some mid-week Easter holiday fun! 

Themed activities over the two days will include an Easter Egg Hunt and arts and crafts for just £3 per child, and £2 per accompanying adult.  A small children’s funfair will also be on site and rides are included in the ticket price. 

In addition to the overground fun, the guided Underground Bunny Adventure makes a return for 2023 where a very special visitor will be waiting in his Bunny Burrow to meet you!  Tickets for the Underground Bunny Adventure are £5 per person which includes a pair of bunny ears for every intrepid explorer. 


Cllr Ann Crimmings, Cabinet Member for Environment, Leisure & Heritage Services, said: “Easter Egg-stravaganza is a fantastic way to kick off the annual events calendar at A Welsh Coal Mining Experience. 

“We look forward to welcoming regular and brand-new visitors to one of the top tourist attractions here in Rhondda Cynon Taf – and of course we extend a very warm welcome to the Easter Bunny who will be visiting us for the very first time.  

“There’s always a great day out to be had at A Welsh Coal Mining Experience; from the ever-popular underground guided tour with its virtual dram ride, to browsing the free exhibitions to relaxing in Caffe Bracchi with a coffee or afternoon tea, there’s always a reason to visit time and time again. 

“A big thank you to Nathanial Cars for joining us as event sponsors for the second year running, making the Easter Egg-stravaganza and our other events enjoyable experiences for all the community.”
