SOLIDARITY AND THE 1984-85 MINERS’ STRIKE EXHIBITION
23 – 26 NOVEMBER 2015
In March 1984 over 150,000 British coal miners went on strike to protest against plans for widespread closures in the industry. The strike, ultimately unsuccessful, lasted a year and was one of the most significant industrial disputes in British history. Alongside the industrial struggle emerged a large and diverse social movement to help sustain the miners and their communities.
To commemorate this event the TUC Library Collections and London Metropolitan University have produced a new exhibition entitled Solidarity and the 1984-85 Miners Strike.
The exhibition will be open to the public at London Metropolitan University, Wash Houses, E1 7NT.
Monday 23rd – Thursday 26th November 2015
Entrance is free and via Goulston Street reception, London Metropolitan University, Aldgate Campus, London E1 7TP. Nearest tube station Aldgate/Aldgate East.
