The Miners' HymnsA live concert of the original score by Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson is performed alongside a screening of Bill Morrison's The Miners' Hymns in the Barbican Hall. Using rarely-seen footage from the British Film Institute, the BBC, and other archives, The Miners' Hymns is a documentary on the former coal mining communities in northeast England and a celebration of the social, cultural, and political aspects of the now extinct industry.

Ugly or not, this multi-faceted performance and arts venue is truly wondrous. Open 363 days a year, it offers the most diverse program of any London venue. More about Barbican Centre
