Takeover Day 2019 – Strike

Special event

Fri 22nd November, Woodhorn Museum

All afternoon; pop up cinema 2pm

Takeover Day is a national initiative by Kids in Museums where museums, galleries, archives and heritage sites invite young people in to 'take over'.

Visit Woodhorn Museum on Takeover Day 2019 (Friday 22nd November) to support a group of talented young filmmakers who have worked with My Life Productions over the last year to research, develop and produce two short films on the subject of the 1984/5 Miners’ Strike.

Come along during the afternoon to meet the young people and find out more about their project and film work. Then take a seat in our pop-up cinema to enjoy the film screenings at 2pm.
 
  • Strike: A short fictional film based on the true stories of the 1984/85 miners strike. 16mins
  • 80’s Life: The Miners’ Strike: A documentary about the lives of the people affected by the miners strike. 33mins
 
If you can’t make it along in person, then give us a follow on Twitter, as group will be taking over the @Woodhorn twitter feed for the day too! 
This project and event was made possible through a partnership between Museums Northumberland and My Life productions, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Northumberland County Council.
