The groups who inspired hit film Pride reunite 30 years on

A group of supporters for Welsh miners and gay rights campaigners have reunited 30 years after they forged an alliance during the 1984-85 Miners' Strike.

Their campaign inspired last year's Bafta award winning film, Pride.

Now, they're hoping to inspire and rekindle grassroots activism...

Watch the report from Mike Griffiths below:

The film told the true story of how gay and lesbian activists decided to raise money and lend their support to strikers in a south Wales mining community in 1984.

Members of the group returned to that village - Onllwyn in the Dulais Valley -for a reunion this weekend.

For Gethin Roberts - played in the film by Andrew Scott - the event will be bittersweet.

The event - organised by those who led the community during the strike - is a sell-out.

They hope the revived support group will to inspire a new generation of campaigners.

The reunion event has sold out

Pit closures throughout the 80s and 90s have seen Wales' mining industry significantly reduced in size.

Thirty years on from the end of the strike, the activists and miners' welfare organisation continue to celebrate the friendships made during the campaign.
