Understories’ is a brush with the new folklore of Shropshire, featuring award-winning musicians and poet Whalebone and Jean Atkin. Here are urban – and rural – myths, and tales just out of living memory. They are the common uncommon.
Discover Shropshire’s last wolves and cloggers, its haunted roundabouts, pigs, railway lines and oak trees, not to mention the boy who burrowed under a church.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Utilising rarely seen archive footage and a powerful score from the late Jóhann Jóhannsson, Bill Morrison’s collage film The Miners’ Hymns delivers a memorable tribute to coal mining in the north of England, touching on a wealth of topics – including workers’ rights and the 1984 strikes – to highlight an integral part of this sceptered isle’s industrial history.
Showing at the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron in Ironbridge – itself a hotbed of activity during the Industrial Revolution and one of the oldest mining areas in the country – the screening will be followed by a live performance from the Wellington Brass Band to highlight the similarly storied links between mining and the working-class tradition of colliery brass bands.
