    Well... it's Durham Miners Gala this Saturday (12th July) and was just curious as to which bands were going. I think it should be a cracking day... even more so if the weathers nice. Saying that, Durham is normally a good day out anyway, marching... loads of people and most importantly of all ... LOTS OF ALCOHOL !!!!:) So Whos Going ? ... You never know... might see someone you know there.

    Westoe will be there with the Aged Miners Homes banner. Early start, but because they're old, we only march in and don't march out. Hurrah! More beer instead!

    It's my first Durham Miners Gala. I've been to several Miners Galas in the past, as we are a colliery band, but it's my first one at Durham.

    So, what's all the fuss?
