Event description

Description

Every second Saturday in July the city of Durham is taken over by miners, trade-unions and the public for a major event known locally as "The Big Meeting". The Durham Miners' Gala is an annual celebration of noise, colour and solidarity, of class culture, creativity and endeavour. Attracting 200,000 people, banners and brass bands parade through the streets to honour their heritage. The Big Meeting reflects the past, present and future of the Gala and labour movement, whilst following four protagonists over the course of this impressive working-class occasion.

The film will start at 19.30, the licenced bar will be open from 19.00

Directed by Daniel Draper
