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 available for the Wednesday and Thursday night performance.
