Coal Forest
Fantasic For Families
  • Entry is free for children aged 0-16 and £7 for adults. Concession tickets are priced at £6. All passes are valid for unlimited visits for 12 months from the date of issue.

Coal Forest will see the site transformed through a series of magical and thought-provoking art installations in our museum and colliery heritage buildings.

Coal Forest will be complemented by an exciting event programme that shifts with the seasons through Autumn, Winter and Spring.

Neon lungs glow in the heart of the colliery ventilation system. A plainsong chant leads to a kaleidoscopic vision of coal; past, present and future. A curious, tree-like figure has taken root in front of the blacksmith’s forge. An unearthly stag is disturbed as he grazes in the depths of the mine. Extraordinary and ancient insects creep through the colliery site.
