The annual event is staged by RCT Council in support of former miner Bill Richards who established it to remember 31 colleagues killed in an explosion at 1pm on 17th May 1965.

In an interview broadcast on GTFM prior to this years event Bill, now 81 years of age, explained how it all began to Terry Mann.
