A Centre of Education, heritage and culture for Durham Coalfield communities
Redhills Durham Miners Hall will become a hub of cultural activity, where community groups can meet, brass bands and choirs of the county can perform, and artistic talent can showcase their work.
The 60 banner groups that proudly maintain their Durham Coalfield communities’ colours and parade them every year at the Miners’ Gala will have a shared home. We’re incredibly lucky to have the support of many trades unions, trusts and foundations and our funders, including our primary funders: National Heritage Lottery Fund, Durham Miners Association and Durham County Council.
