Yesterday evening the TUC hosted our exhibition, Solidarity and the Miners Strike, at its Congress House heaquarters in London. TUC General-Secretary Frances O’Grady opened the exhibition and introduced a number of guest speakers including Chris Kitchen, General Secretary of the NUM, Granville Williams from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign, plus Mike Jackson from Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners and Welsh miner David Donovan, who were both depicted in the recent film Pride.

The exhibition will be available to view by TUC staff and union officials within Congress House for the next two weeks, before moving on to other parts of the UK in the coming months (details to follow).
