Durham City: An invite is extended to all  members of NELHS  to attend the National Women Against Pit Closures 40th Anniversary March

March 2 @ 12:30 - 21:00

The parade of banners will  assemble at Palace Green (Cathedral) at 12.30  where we will sing the Women’s Song  and the Riverside Brass Band will play Gresford and at 1pm  we will parade down Saddler Street and then on to Elvet Bridge led by the Riverside Brass Band. The parade will end outside the Swan and Three Cygnets with another song and the band playing Sweet Caroline. We would love you to join in with us or just watch from the street.

There is also a performance by Joe Solo outside Dunelm House (Durham Students Union building in New Elvet) and Durham miners’ banners will  provide a guard of honour for the women of the coalfields.
