When Coal Was King

When Coal Was King

A celebration of the mining heritage of Dunfermline and West Fife.

A series of events to celebrate the history of mining in Dunfermline and West Fife will be taking place in and around the Kingsgate Centre from Wednesday 17th until Sunday 21st May.

The Bowhill Players are a multi – instrumental group founded by Fife poet and songwriter Willie Hershaw to celebrate and perform the songs and poems of the legendary Cardenden playwright Joe Corrie (1894 – 1968). Corrie wrote about the struggles of the mining communities in central Fife during the years of the General Strike of 1926. He became a world famous playwright after he wrote In Time Of Strife. The Bowhill Players have continued Corrie’s legacy with their acclaimed live performances and the stunning recording “Cage Load Of Men”.

Tickets for the concert are sale at the Fire Station in Dunfermline and from 07748736042
