Former pit workers and their wives and partners are invited to share their experiences of the 1984-5 miners’ strike at a commemoration event.
The strike will be remembered as part of a May Day celebration at Wakefield Labour Club, known as the Red Shed, on Saturday, May 3.
There will be speeches, discussion and food in a free afternoon session from noon-3pm at the Vicarage Street club.
Then the Red Shed players and others will entertain in a miners’ strike 30th anniversary party from 7pm.
Tickets are available from the club. All proceeds will go to the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign, set up to call for a public inquiry into the policing of a mass picket at a coking works near Rotherham during the strike.
