    I’m an ex miner and mines rescue.
    I know there are people who give talks or
    lectures about coal mining, but it is possible
    I’m the only one in the country who performs a one man show about the mining industry.
    Being a poet, story teller, mixed with historical facts makes a educational show for all ages.
    Coal as all but gone my Friends,
    writer’s hold the key for what they seen and did. It will only come alive again for those who want read or listen.

About this Sponsor

The MuBu Coalmining Project took place from April 2010 to the end of March 2012.  The remit was two-fold - firstly to see how the once vast coalmining industry in the East Midlands was represented in the Heritage sector and secondly to bring aspects of social media to that representation. The Coal mining project was funded by Renaissance East Midlands (REM) and the Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS) at the University of Nottingham. The Bursary holder was Dr. David Amos who completed a PhD on the 1984-85 Miners Strike in the Nottinghamshire Coalfield. David is an ex miner, having worked in the deep mining coal industry at Annesley Colliery for 24 years.
