Thu 26 Sep, Ironbridge Gorge Museum
Utilising rarely seen archive footage and a powerful score from the late Jóhann Jóhannsson, Bill Morrison’s collage film The Miners’ Hymns delivers a memorable tribute to coal mining in the north of England, touching on a wealth of topics - including workers’ rights and the 1984 strikes - to highlight an integral part of this sceptered isle’s industrial history.
Showing at the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron in Ironbridge - itself a hotbed of activity during the Industrial Revolution and one of the oldest mining areas in the country - the screening will be followed by a live performance from the Wellington Brass Band to highlight the similarly storied links between mining and the working class tradition of colliery brass bands.
