We are pleased to invite you to the launch of a new exhibition at Congress House commemorating the miners' strike of 1984.
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.

The TUC Library have produced a new exhibition entitled Solidarity and the 1984-85 Miners Strike and we would like to invite you to attend a launch of the exhibition in Congress House on Monday the 14th March 2016 from 6pm onwards (speeches from 6.30pm). 

(The exhibition will be on display in the Marble Hall between the 14th and 25th March.)

Please RSVP for yourself or anyone who is attending on your behalf to : TUC Librarian Jeff Howarth j.howarth@londonmet.ac.uk or 02071333726, TUC Library Collections at London Metropolitan University
