Durham Miners' Gala Festival Service

An annual service as part of the Miners’ Gala; a vibrant and joyful celebration of County Durham’s mining tradition. A particular highlight of the Cathedral calendar. 

Thousands of people from across the County and beyond come to Durham to celebrate the rich mining heritage of the North East. This day of festivities culminates in the procession of pit banners, preceded by the pit brass bands, to the Cathedral, where they are laid up, and often new banners are dedicated.
