Wortley Hall has been chosen as, like previous venues, it has past links to
the NUM’s education. I attended many Derbyshire NUM weekend and week long
schools there as I am sure did many of us. It is also a valuable Trade Union
resource that is celebrating 60 years of ownership by the Trade Union and Labour
Movement (who says workers can’t run a business!). It will also feature a number
of public meetings.
The timetable is as follows
Mon 7th November 7:00 pm
Official opening by Arthur Scargill Honorary President NUM, incorporating
From the Miners Strike to the Current Capitalist
Crisis – Ken Capstick former Vice President, Yorkshire
The artist Darren Coffield will also speak on what inspired him to create
Tues 8th November 8:00 pm
The Media – from the Miners Strike to Murdochgate
Granville Williams – Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom and Editor
– Shafted- the Miners Strike & the Aftermath
Peter Lazenby – Industrial Correspondent Yorkshire Evening Post, arrested
during the strike.
Fri 11th November 7:00 pm
