With Banners Held High: 30 Years On

Support this important film project.

To mark the 30th Anniversary of the Miners’ Strike, One to One Development Trust, a Wakefield based media charity, will be making a short documentary film celebrating the unique humour of the strike. The film will include ex-miners, Women Against Pit Closures and Trade Union representatives who all played their part during the strike.

These humorous stories from the strike form an important part of the heritage of the coalfields.

For Banners Held High, we wanted to capture these precious funnytales that celebrate cameraderie for audences now and in the future.

We need your support. We need to raise £8000 to support this project.

The film will be launched at the With Banners Held High day long festival of talks , debate,film and music to mark 30 years since the end of the 1984/85 Miners’ Strike to be held at Unity Works, Wakefield on Saturday 7th March 2015.
