Some say that Spittal Gala has its historical roots in the local fishing industry, particularly salmon. However, local Gala's throughout the North East had their origins in the coal mining industry but there was a link to fishing as shown in the picture of the 1954 Spittal Salmon King and Queen with Robin Hood from the Carnival. The Gala remains an event that is suited for families.

The weekend kicks off, literally, with a five aside competition on Saturday 10th June in Spittal 1st School field. There are four levels within the competition with registration, at £6 per team, taking place for 9 & 11 years at 9.15am with under 13's & 15 years at 1.30pm. Gala Day itself is on Sunday 11th June. This takes place on the grassed area at the southern end of the Promenade next to Hud's Head. Entry to the event is by bucket collection and there will be a variety of amusements for young and old alike.
