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 his local Colliery Band from County Durham to the National Brass Band Competition at the Royal Albert Hall looks like it might finally happen. But as the 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 and Tara Fitzgerald, Brassed Off features brass band players from County Durham performing music including William Tell Overture, Land of Hope and Glory and Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez.
BSL performances of Brassed Off will take place on Saturday 10 September, 2.30pm and Tuesday 20 September, 7.30pm.
