The premiere of ‘The Big Meeting’ – a new feature film about the Durham Miners’ Gala.
The 94-minute film explores the meaning of the Gala and follows some of the people who make it such an inspiring event. It also includes contributions from Gala supporters including Dennis Skinner and Jeremy Corbyn.
The film will go on general release in cinemas later this summer.
Join the stars of the film and some special guests and see it first. The premiere, at Redhills: Durham Miners Hall on Saturday 22 June, will feature a panel discussion with director Daniel Draper and some of the stars of the film (TBA).
Proceeds from the film premiere will go to the Marras – Friends of Durham Miners’ Gala, which was established to fund the event following the closure of the collieries.
• Doors open at 6pm
