Brassed Off: Spoken Word Productions

12 - 16 Mar 2019


Following their highly successful production of Little Voice, Spoken Word Productions are back with Brassed Off, the 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. 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 Pete Postlethwaite, Spoken Word’s adaptation not only features a local brass band, but many faces familiar from their previous productions. Please note that this production at times contains language of an adult nature.
