A share of a pensioner’s Christmas ‘Bonus’ - PHM - 5 December - 18 January

People’s History Museum
Saturday 5 December - Monday 18 January 2016
10.00am – 5.00pm

It’s Christmas 1984.  Sam, Gayle, Jayne and Craig are the children of striking miners.  This is the story of how acts of generosity by total strangers made Christmas possible for them that year, and what it was like for them to grow up in the shadow of the Miners’ Strike.  This exhibition bears witness to their untold stories, and includes artefacts from the People’s History Museum archive, and a newly commissioned audiovisual project by artist and film-maker Esther Johnson, and film-maker and writer Debbie Ballin.

Suitable for all ages
