School children will bring the past to life at a public performance in the historic home of the Durham miners.

The event will mark the culmination of an arts and education project at Redhills: Durham Miners Hall.

The Pitman’s Parliament Project will see pupils from St John’s School, Bishop Auckland, explore the tumultuous history of life on the Durham Coalfield through industrialisation, mining disasters, and unionisation.

The dates for our Transition Summer School this year are:

Week 1: 10-14 August

Week 2: 17-21 August

Letters will be sent out in due course.
