Durham miners gala 2023


The Durham Miners' Gala returned in 2022 after a three-year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It was the biggest Gala in decades as more than 200,000 people packed the streets of Durham and the Racecourse ground to enjoy the sights and sounds of The Big Meeting. Hosted by the Durham Miners Association (DMA) since 1871, the Gala is the world's greatest celebration of community, international solidarity, and working-class culture. It is a unique and inspiring spectacle.
