To mark the anniversary of the event, displays and re-enactments of the evictions are being held at Silksworth Library and Beckwith Mews on Saturday from 10:00 BST.
(although i've found another page that says its at Beamish too)
Every day from Saturday, 11th to Sunday, 19th February The Town, Pit Village, Colliery Yard and Tramway will be recreating the atmosphere of the evictions in a colliery community, and remembering the miners who were evicted from their homes by Lord Londonderry.
Lots more photos on the Beamish site
