You could say that the Grimethorpe Colliery Band are the real stars of the hit movie Brassed Off and they're coming to The Charter Theatre in Preston!

Formed in 1917, the world renowned Grimethorpe Colliery Band has become a British Institution. Throughout the years their competition successes include 16 Brass in Concert championship titles, 11 times Yorkshire Regional Champions, two English National Championship victories, four times British Open Champions and four times National Champion Brass Band of Great Britain.

They have been invited to perform at many events including the FIFA World Cup, BAFTA Awards, BBC Proms, Eurovision and the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony as well as a wealth of national and international television/radio appearances.

The Grimethorpe Colliery Band is promising a wonderfully entertaining show with a magnificent programme of popular material including Carnival in Venice, 1812 Overture, Death or Glory, Glenn Miller tribute and of course an extended section of tunes from the hit movie Brassed Off.
