Pictures taken today at the Gala.
The Durham Miners’ Gala recently had the biggest Gala in decades as more than 200,000 people packed the streets of Durham and the Racecourse ground.
A generation on from the colliery closures, more than 60 Durham miners banners and more than 50 brass bands participated.
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.
