  • “EVERY FILM A REVELATION!” - Durham On Film at the Gala Theatre And Cinema

    We were delighted to present our Durham On Film show at the Gala Theatre and Cinema on Saturday 9th March, and were so thrilled to see a sold-out house of over 400 people in attendance.  

    If you missed the show, which included footage of communities, industries and famous faces from across Durham County dating back to 1902, then fear not!  We return to the Gala with the show on Saturday 6th July!
