    Does anyone have any contact details or know who to contact as we would very much like to play next year, but details seem a little sketchy.

    Sketchy? John - I asked the same question this time last year and Michelle Garbutt kindly gave me the details of Dave Hopper at the NUM headquarters in Durham. I was passed form pillar to post, left countless messages and, to this day, no-one has had the decency to respond to my request for info about playing at the Gala. I gave up in the end. Having lived in the North East, and played at the Gala for many years, I recall the frantic calls from bands needing players, and communities desperate for a band to march their banner in. I'm sure Mr Hopper has a busy day job as a Union rep or something, but hey, he can't be that busy - there're hardly any bloomin' mines!
