The Dave Hopper Memorial Lecture with Shami Chakrabarti @ Redhills: Durham Miners Hall

Shadow Attorney General Shami Chakrabarti will give this year’s Dave Hopper Memorial Lecture on the eve of the Durham Miners’ Gala.

The event, at Redhills: Durham Miners Hall, is in tribute to the longest-serving General Secretary of the Durham Miners’ Association (DMA).

The current DMA Secretary Alan Mardghum will introduce the event, which will also hear from Ed Yankovich, Vice-President Emeritus of the United Mine Workers of America. Mary Stratford of Education 4 Action will chair.

Tickets are on sale now with all proceeds going to the Marras – Friends of Durham Miners’ Gala.

A standard ticket is priced £5, with an unwaged ticket at £3. A solidarity ticket is also available for those able to contribute more in support of the Gala, and to enable us to offer a lower priced ticket while covering the costs of hosting the event.

• Doors open at 4pm

• The event will begin at 5pm

• Refreshments will be served in the Committee Room

The event forms part of Education 4 Action‘s Durham Miners’ Gala fringe programme.
