This November, Blackburn Empire Theatre welcomes Brassed Off by Mark Herman (adapted by Paul Allen)
With Blackburn Drama Club and Blackburn and Darwen Band.
Grimley Colliery is set to close as the accountants say there’s more money in it shut than open, even after redundancy payments.
It means 1200 job losses, a dying town and the loss of its brass band. But under the leadership of Danny, coughing with coal-dusted lungs, the band is somehow transformed into British champions with local lass, Gloria, whipping up the money needed to get them to the Albert Hall.
Blackburn Empire Theatre presents ‘Brassed Off’ Wednesday 21st November to Saturday 24th November at 7:30 pm. Tickets are £12.
Available online here or from the Booking Office in person or by phone (Monday to Saturday 10am to 12:30pm) 01254 685 500.
