With Banners Held High 2017

The Flame Still Burns

The pits are all closed but the impulse to celebrate the heritage and to record the impact of coal mining – whether with banners and memorials or in film, drama, painting, poetry and music – continues unabated. With Banners Held High 2017 celebrates the creative power and spirit of coal mining, past and present.

Workshops and debates connect issues from the epic year-long miners’ strike to the struggles we face today.
– Keynote speaker Dennis Skinner MP
– Celebration of the life of Davey Hopper
– plus a packed programme of exhibitions, music, poetry, debates and films
