90th Anniversary of The Levant Disaster

I am extremely proud to be one of the contributing artists to this event which marks the 90th Anniversary of the tragic collapse of the man engine at Levant Mine which occurred on the afternoon of Monday 20th October 1919. A total of 31 local men lost their lives, and many more were left injured and traumatised by the terrible sequence of events that took place. The toll on the community in Penwith was immense.

The community art project – 90 Years ~ 90 Artists – is also coming to a climax with the exhibition of the completed 90 canvases. Entrance to the exhibition is free, and details are shown in the poster above.

On Friday 30th October, at the close of the exhibition there will be a grand draw with the 90 canvases forming 90 individaul prizes. This will take place between 4.00-6.00pm. Tickets are being sold throughout August, September and October priced £1 each in books of 5 tickets. To obtain tickets please contact either the St Just & District Trust (secretary 07917 196069) or The National Trust Levant ( 01736 786156).

Below is a list of the brave miners who lost their lives in the tragic collapse of the man engine at Levant Mine, on Monday 20th October 1919:-
