Event description

Description

As part of The Redhills Project we are hosting a series of Little Big Meetings - open forum events which bring the current and potential users of the Miners Hall together to learn about the project and have their say. These meetings are organised thematically to ensure conversations are focused, productive and help us to build networks.

Performance

This meeting is focused on how we bring Redhills to life with performances of any and all kinds. Incorporating everything from theatre to film, dancing to debating and poetry to panto we're casting our net far and wide! As the sign above the door of the beautiful Grade 2 listed Council Chamber says, "Licensed in Pursuance of Act of Parliament for Music and Dancing". As such the Pitman's Parliament, as it's known, has always been somewhere that people come together for events.

Historically the hall played host to Boxing Day brass band concerts, pantomimes for the children of miners, plays with political messages and much more. Which is not to mention the incredible heritage of speech making and pubic speaking. Continuing this diverse tradition we plan to open the building up to communities and events from all walks of life.

As we look to the future we want to explore how and why people might want to create a buzzing events programme that brings existing and new audiences together. If you're looking for somewhere to host events, want to offer ideas, advice or expertise or just want to show your support for the project come along and take part.

Join Performance Champions Carlo Viglianisi and Jill Heslopp to have your say and help us make Redhills the beating heart of the Durham Coalfield area once again.
