Future and next events

Events programme for 2021

The History of Consett Steelworks Team are working on an exciting series of events for 2021 – watch this space!

8 March 2021 is International Women’s Day

To commemorate International Women’s Day and the impact women workers had on industry and community growth, HCSW will be presenting a series of talks on 8 and 9th March.

Presentations will be on a wide variety of subjects including mining and women of the north east coalfield, women’s involvement in steel production and the war effort and the Suffragettes to name a few. The programme for 8th March has been pre-recorded, and our presentations will be loaded up throughout the day at two hourly intervals from 10am to 6pm. Most will remain on the website for at least 1 month.

There will also be a International Women’s Day Film Club and a gallery of images relating to the work of women and their contribution to the history, society and economy of the region and its industries. Regular Twitter posts will be available at @ConsettWorks, using the hashtag #IWD2021

Full details may be found at the following link, and we look forward to having you with us:
