Copper Day marks the 200th anniversary of the first copper ingot rolling out of the internationally-famed Hafod Copperworks of Vivian and Sons and the 50th birthday of the Lower Swansea Valley Project which began the world’s first post-industrial land reclamation scheme.

In the city that once smelted half of the world’s copper this festival of talks, tours, activities and information aims to raise awareness of the significance of the historic Welsh copper industry, its heritage, and the place of copper in our lives today.
