Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control at Palace Green, all planned events as part of Balloons InDurham at this location have now be re-arranged to take place at The Sands, as part of the Durham Pride celebrations. Our thanks to the organisers of Durham Pride and the Freeman of the City for inviting Balloons InDurham to this event. Click here for more information.

MINERS: PITMEN, PRIDE AND PRAYER

Durham Cathedral

19.06.18 to 15.09.18

The Collections Gallery, Open Treasure

 
Celebrate the mining heritage of County Durham with a fascinating exhibition in the Open Treasure Collections Gallery.  Twenty-five years since the closure of the last County Durham colliery, and 75 years since the founding of the ‘Bevin Boys’, we explore the Cathedral's links to coalmining in the region, the continuing role of the Durham Miners' Gala, and how mining remains an integral part of County Durham life.
