The centrepiece of the day will be a live online event streamed to Facebook and YouTube. It will feature new videos including archive footage from the Gala’s long history, brass band music, messages from key workers who’ve been dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic, and contributions from leading labour movement figures.
The day is titled The Second Saturday in July – the day on which the Gala is held each year.
