Commissioned to work with Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership to commemorate the 150th anniversary of The Oaks Disaster, which claimed 383 lives and still remains to be the worst mining disaster in England’s history.

Receiving coverage from the Barnsley Chronicle and BBC Sheffield, coupled with marketing materials, inevitably created higher footfall and ensured that When The Oaks Fired exhibition was the busiest ever at Experience Barnsley.
