Born in ’84

‘Born in ‘84’ is to be a celebration of the 1984/85 dispute on March 8, 2014 – 30 years to the day since the strike began – and what followed.
Music, film, drama and poetry will combine in a packed programme to mark the 30th anniversary of the year-long miners’ strike in an event at Chesterfield’s Winding Wheel Theatre.
In Chesterfield, Derbyshire, local volunteers are bringing together a host of strike-themed music, film, drama, poetry and photography to highlight the dispute and its impact on generations past and present.
