On the evening of Monday 23rd November we launched our exhibition ‘Solidarity and the 1984-5 miners’ strike‘. Thank you to all those who attended the launch event. Particular thanks are extended to our speakers on the night: the Vice-Chancellor of London Metropolitan University, John Raftery; Mike Jackson from Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners; former Labour MP Hywel Francis; and to the band Ribbon Road, who ended the evening with a performance of their wonderful miners strike-inspired songs.

The exhibiton closes at 5pm on Thursday 26th November at its current venue at London Metropolitan University, but will be touring other parts of London and nationwide in the New Year.
