An Oldham Coliseum Theatre Production
Brassed Off

Based on a true story, Brassed Off is a funny and life-affirming tale of community spirit and triumph in the face of adversity.

It’s 1992; and Danny’s lifelong ambition to lead Grimley Colliery Band to the National Brass Band Competition at the Royal Albert Hall looks like it might finally happen. But as Grimley pit faces closure, the future looks bleak as the town is thrown into conflict.

Flugelhorn player Gloria arrives in town bringing with her a renewed sense of hope and a touch of romance, but no-one knows who she’s really playing for. ..

Adapted from the 1996 film starring Ewan McGregor, Brassed Off features the best in brass bands from Oldham and the local area playing music including: William Tell Overture, Death and Glory, Danny Boy, Land of Hope and Glory and Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez.

Brassed Off features local brass bands:
The Delph Band – Wednesday 7 – Saturday 10 September
The Diggle Band – Tuesday 13 – Saturday 17 September
The Oldham Band (Lees) – Tuesday 20 September – Saturday 24 October
Boarshurst Silver Band – Tuesday 27 September – Saturday 1 October

Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes
