Durham Miners’ Gala 2011

Durham Miners Gala 2011 took place on Saturday (9th July). As ever the city was buzzing and we were treated to the usual excellent selection of bands. In approaching photographing this years gala I was keen to stay away from the traditional photos of bandsmen reflected in their instruments and decided to focus more on the social side, centred around the city’s Racecourse. It’s not necessarily a flattering depiction of the event but one that stemmed from accompanying a South Korean visitor to last year’s gala.
