Event Navigation

On Thursday, 5th May 2016 at Five Leaves Bookshop between 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm Granville Williams will be talking about his contribution to the book Pit Props, which marks the end of an era in coal mining in the UK and highlights how the incredible year-long struggle by the miners in defence of jobs and communities still resonates today.

Booking is recommended. To attend this event, please email fiveleaves.bookshopevents@gmail.com

Pit Props tells the amazing story of the flood of international support –money, food, toys, clothes, toiletries as well as holidays abroad – which sustained the miners and their families during that year of struggle and gives focus to the vital creative links between music, politics and protest which grew up during the strike.
