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.
