Durham Miners' Gala camping

Make the most of The Big Meeting with official camping hosted by Marras - the Friends of Durham Miners' Gala.

The campsite is in a beautiful and quiet setting just a short walk from the festivities, and includes free luxury showers and toilets, plus a café and entertainment marquee featuring open mike - so bring your guitars. The 135th Durham Miners' Gala takes place on Saturday 13 July 2019.


Accommodation can be booked now for Friday 12, and Saturday 13 July 2019. Places are limited and people are advised to book early. The campsite will open at noon on Friday 12, and closes at 4pm on Sunday 14 July. Camper vans and caravans, as well as tents, are welcome. Dogs on leads are also welcome.

Camping is priced at just £15 per person per night for adults, £7.50 for under 16s, and free for under 5s. Free cancellation with a full refund is available until Saturday 6 July – a week before the Big Meeting.

There is also a 25 percent discount for members of the Marras, who have been sent a discount code by email. To become a Marra and receive your discount code, click here. All funds raised from camping will go to help cover the costs of staging the Gala, which is a free event.
