Opening hours 10.00am – 4.00pm Mon-Friday, 10am-1.30pm Sat
Open evening Tues 17th June, 7.30pm

30 years ago Stratford upon Avon resident John Harris photographed the year-long Miners Strike from beginning to end.
He now brings together the pictures from the archive of his photo agency http://www.reportdigital.co.uk
for a stunning exhibition of photographs of the biggest and longest strike in history- a struggle for their jobs and their industry, in which the government attempted to discredit, isolate, beat and finally starve the miners back to work.
