The flame still burns: the creative power of coal

Event location: Working Class Movement Library

Date: 15th Jun 2017

Event time: 19:00 to 21:00

This year is the 70th anniversary of the nationalisation of the coal industry.  Vesting Day for the National Coal Board was 1 January 1947.

Our event is centred around a book, The flame still burns: the creative power of coal, which explores the sheer power of an industry which created rich, diverse cultures in the different mining communities, and continues to inspire fresh creative work today.

Granville Williams, the book's editor, will introduce a selection of films produced by the versatile and creative NCB Film Unit between 1947 and 1984.

Admission free; all welcome.
