Featuring Rotherham Town Band
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 at the Royal Albert Hall seem like a distant dream. The arrival of flugelhorn-playing Gloria brings hope, to the band on the brink of collapse, but no one knows who she’s really playing for. ..
Based on a true story, Brassed Off is a funny and life-affirming tale of community spirit and triumph in the face of adversity.
Pre-Theatre dining offer at The Wharncliffe is now full.
