The Pitmen Poets

The Pitmen Poets


Since the first Pitmen Poets tour in 2011, Sam West's revival of the seminal "Close the Coalhouse Door" has completed a triumphant UK tour and Lee Hall's "Pitman Painters" has been a hit in the West End and also on Broadway. Interest in the North East's mining tradition has never been more intense.

With archive footage and photographs, this is a journey through the centuries of a once-great industry,from the songs that saw it thrive and dominate, to those that saw it's demise and the resulting aftermath.
