Focus on Strikes

Explore the emotions behind the objects

17 March 2014

17 March 2014, Focus on Strikes @ People's History Museum - Miners' Strike, 1984

Time 13:15 - 14:00

Duration 45 minutes

Cost In order to keep our events programme affordable to everyone, please make a donation

Uncover the real people’s history of some of the museum’s objects.  Forget about the facts and focus on the feelings.  We subvert the idea of a museum tour and ask you the questions – what can you see?  How is that person feeling?  What do you think is happening?

Taking our picket line as a starting point we’ll explore what it may have been like to go on strike at different points throughout history.

Suitable for adults and young people
