Visitors to Blackwood Miners' Institute can currently enjoy a small display of information and photographs connected to the Miners' Strike, provided by the Winding House, New Tredegar. The display is linked to the Billy Bragg concert at Blackwood Miners' Institute on Monday 15th June.
Twenty-five years on, Billy Bragg's special 9-date solo tour of Wales remembers the 1984-85 Miners' Strike and its legacy on communities across Wales. A rebel in every sense, Bragg is best-known for his passionately political lyrics, but also admired for his offbeat love songs.
You can see an interview with Billy in the Western Mail from 5th June.
There are limited tickets still available for the concert call the Box Office on 01495 227206 or book online at www.blackwoodminersinstitute.com.
