Durham Women's Gala

Date and time: 

Saturday, June 30, 2018 - 12:00 to 15:00


Wharton Park Durham

Durham Women's Gala 2018 is taking place Saturday 30th June in Wharton Park. In 1923, County Durham women organised their first Gala, an act of mass political education for newly-enfranchised women. It continued for decades, attracting thousands of people with speakers like Barbara Castle, Jennie Lee and Harold Wilson. In this centenary year of women’s suffrage, we are bringing it back to celebrate our achievements and look at ahead at what must still be done. 

The 2018 Women’s Gala will take place in Wharton Park on Saturday 30 June 2018, 12.00pm-4.00pm. There will be speakers, live music, refreshments including amazing street food, crafts, women’s section banners, voter registration spaces for not-for-profit organisations to promote their work.
