Rothbury riot: 90th anniversary commemoration

About this Event

On the 90th anniversary of the Rothbury riot join us for a community morning tea and a showing of the powerful documentary ‘Lockout’, first screened on History channel, Foxtel Australia New Zealand.

This documentary re-creates the 1929-1930 ‘lockout’ in the Hunter Valley collieries, explains the escalation of tension which culminated in the riot at Rothbury on 16 December 1929 and charts its enduring legacy.

One of the producers of ‘Lockout’, Greg Hall, will be our special guest on the day and copies of the film will be available for sale.
