Following last year’s success, the Durham Women’s Gala returns this Saturday 8 June 2019. Taking place in Wharton Park, the historic home of both the Women’s Gala and the Durham Miners’ Gala, this year’s event will focus on young women and their role in politics as part of the TUC Year of the Young Worker.
The family-friendly event will bring together inclusive, child-friendly activities with live music, food and feminism. Speakers will include the Shadow Attorney General, Baroness Shami Chakrabarti, Northumbria PCC Vera Baird, UNISON Regional Secretary Clare Williams and young feminist campaigners from Tyneside to Teesside.
Entry is free.
