[Archive] - Brassed Off 2009

 Brassed Off - Live!

Harrogate Theatre, Wednesday 30th September to Saturday 3rd October 2009

How many plays can you name that incorporate a brass band into the live performance?

Brassed Off brings brass band music to the theatre going public and breathes new life into the storyline of the popular film.

Brassed Off is a rousing comedy-drama set in 1994, a time of uncertainty for the miners of Grimley Colliery in South Yorkshire and their families who are taking their last stand against indiscriminate pit closures. With their pit under threat of closure and the colliery band on the verge of breaking up, their chance of competing nationally seems distant dream. Then along comes Gloria, rekindling enthusiasm, passion and romance, and carrying a flugelhorn which sounds amazing...

This heartwarming tale is presented by Harrogate Dramatic Society, with the award-winning Harrogate Band appearing live as 'Grimley Colliery Band'.

Tickets are available from Harrogate Theatre Box Office on 01423 502116 or
