MINING EXHIBITION: The North-East’s mining heritage will be marked in a new Hartlepool exhibition by artists who were once miners themselves.

“The Art of Mining” is at Central Library in York Road from today (TUESDAY MARCH 25) to Thursday April 3. Entry is free and all the items on show will be for sale.

The exhibition follows in the tradition of the Pitmen Painters – the group of Ashington miners who used art to record their experiences between the 1930s and 1980s.
