The Trustees of the Burston Strike School welcome visits not only from individuals, but also from educational groups and are always happy to be on hand to meet and talk about the Burston Rebellion and its legacy.
Please contact the Secretary to the Trustees, Shaun Jeffery, on 07810 301 398 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Three short films are available on the SERTUC resources site. They outline the rural condition of the time, the history of the strike, and the solidarity that made it such a spectacular event. Tutor notes are also available to support group discussion.
