In Conversation with Author Brian Elliott at the National Coal Mining Museum for England.

6 June 2015, 1.00pm – 3.00pm

To mark the publication of Brian Elliott’s latest book Images of the Past: Coalminers, the National Coal Mining Museum for England is hosting a free event on 6th June 1pm-3pm.

Brian will be in conversation with fellow author Mel Dyke discussing his latest book and how he chose the images which give the reader a unique insight into the miner, his family and his work.  Many of the images, which range from woodcuts and engravings to photographs, have come from Brian’s personal collection which he has accumulated over many years of research. 

Brian will be signing copies of his book which will be available for purchase on the day. Visitors will also be able to browse the Library which will be open throughout the day and there will be a display of postcards from the Museum’s collection.

Author Brian Elliot comments,

“It's a pleasure to be a part of this event at the National Coal Mining Museum for England, being able to discuss my work with the museum's visitors is a great experience and one that I have enjoyed thoroughly in the past.”

Why not make a day of it? The museum will be open as usual, giving visitors the opportunity to explore the galleries or take a stroll around the picturesque nature trail. For those visitors that wish to delve a little deeper, embark on one of the fascinating underground tours, 140m below the surface. There will also be a delicious selection of cakes and hot food on offer at the Asparagus Green cafe.
