Camping at the Durham Miners Gala

**The 2020 Durham Miners Gala has been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Everyone who has booked camping for 2020 will receive a full refund. The Durham Miners' Gala will return in 2021 - the 150th anniversary of the first Big Meeting.**



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 (see map below), and includes free luxury showers and toilets, plus on site catering. The 136th Durham Miners' Gala takes place on Saturday 11 July 2020.


Accommodation can be booked now for Friday 10 and/or Saturday 11 July 2020.

The campsite will open at noon on Friday 10, and closes at 4pm on Sunday 12 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 is free for under 5s. Free cancellation with a full refund is available until Saturday 4 July – a week before the Big Meeting.

There is also a 25 percent discount for members of the Marras. To receive your discount code, please email [email protected].

If you haven't yet, become a Marra and support our great celebration. Join today here. All funds raised from camping will go to help cover the costs of staging the Gala, which is a free event.
