“The truth is, I thought it mattered – I thought that music mattered. But does it? ….. Not compared to how people matter.” Danny, Brassed Off

It is 1992, Grimley Colliery faces the threat of closure and the future of the brass band seems uncertain. With the miners torn between redundancy packages and the picket lines, band-leader Danny’s hopes of winning the national brass band competition seem like a distant dream. But the arrival of flugelhorn-playing Gloria brings hope, romance and controversy to the Yorkshire brass band on the brink of collapse.

To coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Miners’ Strike of 1984, we are proud to present this production of Brassed Off, directed by Damian Cruden (director of Olivier Award winning ‘Best Entertainment’ The Railway Children.

Featuring rousing live music including Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez and Jerusalem, Brassed Off is a funny and heart-warming drama that reaches stirring heights as a locally cast Brass Band performs the final scene, set in the Royal Albert Hall.

Passionate and inspiring – a celebration of human endeavour and community spirit in triumph against all the odds.
