The chance to hear the Grimethorpe Colliery Band accompanying the hit film ‘Brassed Off’ live in Sage One.

In this special Brassed Off Live production, the Grimethorpe Colliery Band bring to life the uplifting score.

Brassed Off was the surprise box-office hit of 1996 and was nominated for three BAFTAs, as well as winning nine international film awards, including a prestigious César award in France for Best Foreign Film. It regularly features in lists of the best British films ever made, including the BFI’s definitive top 100.

This 1996 bittersweet comedy drama, written and directed by Mark Herman, stars Pete Postlethwaite as Danny, the devoted leader of the Grimley Colliery Band, who is determined to show the Tories ‘we are not defeated’. Ewan McGregor, Stephen Tompkinson and Tara Fitzgerald are stand-outs in an impressive ensemble cast.

Stephen Tompkinson said: “I’m incredibly proud to have been part of the team that brought Brassed Off to the screen…The chance to hear the Grimethorpe Colliery Band accompanying the film live makes for an unforgettable evening.”
