The Big Meeting – Durham Miner’s Gala DVD
Every second Saturday in July, since 1871, the city of Durham has been taken over by miners, trade-unions and the public for one of the biggest gatherings in Europe, the Durham Miners’ Gala – known locally as “The Big Meeting”.
This film by Daniel Draper “vividly portrays the pageantry and the politics” (Total Film) – “A compelling behind-the-scenes portrait” (Radio Times) “Shines a welcome light on a swathe of society given little voice by the contemporary media” (Sight & Sound)
Critically acclaimed, with 5-star reviews from Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian along with Time Out and Vulture Hound.
Perfec viewing to help get your Political festival fix this summer!
