Key Visitor Economy Developments


As part of the £7.25m regeneration of Redhills – Durham Miners Hall has been awarded £4.5m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for its restoration and renewal as a centre for culture, heritage and education. Durham County Council has also pledged to support the project with £1.1m of matched funding.

Community consultation demonstrated that people who use Redhills now and those that will use it in the future, want it to be a place where things are done.

  • A place where children understand their heritage
  • A place where musicians can practice and perform
  • A place where groups can meet and repair banners, quilts and traditional mats
  • A place where poets and playwrights can showcase their work
  • A place where the traditions and culture of County Durham can be nurtured, developed and preserved
