About The Event

For the Houghton Feast, we've arranged an event to help people learn and reminisce about the Coal Mining era of the North East. On October 11th from 11:30 we have Margaret Hedley here to do a talk about the lives of the women of the Durham coalfield and the exhausting routine they had to follow. Alongside this, we have Andrew Clark from Summerhill Books who will be giving an interactive show and tell with items that would have been common in the home in decades past.

We have 12 space available so please let us know soon if you'd like to come as they will be given at a first come, first serve basis.

Margaret's previous talk was very popular and we are excited to learn more.
