Event - Worksop Town Hall to Host Mining Exhibition

Worksop Town Hall will be hosting a Coal Mining Exhibition by the Nottingham Association of Ex and Retired Miners in the Ceres Suite on Friday 9th December from 11am – 4pm.

The exhibition features tools and items used in Coal Mining as well as hearing first hand anecdotes and experiences from former miners about life at the pit. The exhibition will also feature a number of short films about Coal Mining.

Councillor David Pressley, Portfolio Holder for Community Prosperity at Bassetlaw District Council said:

“Having started off my working life at Whitwell Pit I am looking forward to the Mining Exhibition coming to Worksop. Bassetlaw and the surrounding areas are steeped in mining history and tradition and this exhibition offers the chance for people to find out what life down the pit was all about.”

The Exhibition will take place in the Ceres Suite, Worksop Town Hall from 11am – 4pm on Friday 9th December.
