Quick Overview

The Miners' Strike - 30 years on! The anniversary of the start of the Miners’ Strike of 1984-85 is celebrated in this spectacular and moving video-ballad production. Bringing together unique footage and interviews with miners and their families, this show toured throughout England Wales to huge popular acclaim.


The 12th of March 2009 marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the start of the Miners’ Strike of 1984-85. To celebrate the occasion, Banner Theatre produced a DVD of Burning Issues, the video-ballad production it created for the strike’s 20th anniversary in 2004, made with members of Britain’s mining communities and which toured coalfield and former coalfield communities and elsewhere throughout England and Wales in 2004-05. Banner Theatre is a socialist theatre company based in Birmingham. Formed in 1973, from a disparate collection of folk singers, drama teachers, office workers, broadcasters, technicians and car factory workers, Banner is one of the few companies from the radical community theatre movement of the 1960s-1970s still creating and performing work in partnership with Britain’s Trade Union movement, and working class and disenfranchised communities – those A. Sivanandan calls ‘communities of resistance’.
