Durham Miners Gala - the first Big Meet
The first Durham Miners Gala (aka "Big Meeting") was held on the 12th of August 1871 at Wharton Park in Durham City. The event was organised by The Durham Miners' Association.
The Durham Miners Gala became an annual event - the largest unofficial miners and trade-union gathering in the UK. At its peak the Gala attracted more than 300,000 people. The event has deeply established traditions such as marching with the lodge banners from each colliery into Durham, and music from the colliery brass bands.
