Welcome to the website of the Durham Miners' Association (DMA).
The DMA hosts the famous Durham Miners' Gala - the world's greatest celebration of trade union values, community spirit, and working-class culture. For more than a century, The Big Meeting was paid for by the working miners of the Durham coalfield. Today, it is funded by the Marras - the Friends of Durham Miners' Gala, founded by the DMA to secure the future of the great annual event. Please become a Marra and support the Gala here.
Since 1915, the home of the DMA has been the magnificent Redhills: Durham Miners Hall (pictured). The DMA is working to ensure that Redhills survives and thrives for generations to come as a centre for education, heritage, and culture. To find out more, please go here.
The DMA also continues to provide a range of services for its members - former Durham miners - including compensation claims, benefit information, tribunal representation and legal advice.
