Banner Theatre presents The Battle of Saltley Gate 50 Year Anniversary
Banner celebrates the 50th anniversary of the labour movement victory of Saltley Gate, when 20,000 union workers walked out to support striking miners. They blockaded and closed down the coke depot, in Saltley, a massive show of solidarity that helped miners win the strike and a 30% pay rise! With songs, stories and video, Banner links this historic struggle of the past to the struggles of today!
7-10pm, please arrive early as refreshments including snacks and drinks will be available.
The event is free, but please donate to support the ongoing writing and video editing that Banner needs to create and tour this important production via gofund.me/d2939bd3
