Every second Saturday in July the city of Durham is taken over by miners, trade-unions and the public for The Durham Miners’ Gala, known locally as "The Big Meeting". An annual celebration of noise, colour, culture, creativity, unity and endeavour it attracts 20,000 people who parade through the streets with banners and brass bands to honour their heritage. This film reflects the past, present and future of the Gala and labour movement, whilst following four protagonists over the course of this momentous working-class occasion.
