New film celebrates 150 years of the Durham Miners Gala

2021 is the 150th anniversary year of the Durham Miners' Gala.

First held in 1871, the Gala has been cancelled for the second year running due to the Covid-19 pandemic. To mark the anniversary, the Friends of Durham Miners' Gala release a new short film about the world's greatest celebration of community, solidarity and working-class life.

The Gala is due to return on Saturday 9 July 2022. Help ensure it returns bigger and better than ever before. Join our band of Marras here.
