Details

Bradford PLayers present Brassed Off, a story of the struggle of a small Yorkshire mining community fighting to maintain dignity and hope when it has it's heart torn out by the government's pit closure programme of the early 80s.

It is a triumph of music and the human spirit over hardship and despondency.

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.

Featuring rousing live music performed by Clifton & Lightcliffe Brass Band, including Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez and Jerusalem, Brassed Off is a funny and heart-warming drama that reaches stirring heights.

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