An exhibition of historic NUM banners has been opened by Mayor of Barnsley Coun Tim Shepherd at the Civic Theatre.

The display is being held in partnership with Barnsley Museums as part of the Coal not Dole commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the miners’ strike.

The banners, which reflect the history and pride of many local collieries, were seen at galas and rallies, and during protest marches, including those held during the 1984/85 strike against pit closures.
