“The Minnie Pit Disaster, on the Centenary of the Disaster”

Families from across Staffordshire are being invited to join in a two month celebration of the county’s past.

Historic buildings and landscapes, famous people, unique discoveries like the Staffordshire Hoard and the county’s role during the Great War are amongst the stories being explored during the Staffordshire History Festival.

Over 140 events organised by the county council’s libraries, arts and museum services will take place over September and October.

Exhibitions, historic walks and talks, heritage open days, family history sessions and children’s activities will all be on offer to help people celebrate the county’s rich heritage.

Staffordshire’s libraries also hold a range of useful material, such as newspapers, trade directories and parish registers. Some libraries also have collections of local photographs and people can get free access at all library computers to Find My Past and Ancestry Library Edition.

In the Staffordshire Moorlands you can attend the following event:
