Ken Loach to speak at the Durham Miners' Gala


We are delighted to announce that the acclaimed film director and activist Ken Loach will speak at this year's Durham Miners' Gala on Saturday, 8th July.

Ken is renowned for his numerous excellent films, many of which have dealt with important social issues and historical events. His most recent film "I, Daniel Blake" movingly exposes the inhumane treatment which many people who are trying to access social security entitlements are being subjected to.  

We are very pleased that he will join us at this year's Durham Big Meeting, which remains the largest working-class festival in Britain.
