Blidworth Welfare becomes Grimley Colliery

For three nights and one afternoon starting on Wednesday 10th April 2019, Blidworth Welfare Band will become the infamous Glimley Colliery Band as they star alongside Argent Theatre Company in a production of Brassed Off in Newark.

 

The band has been rehearsing alongside the theatre company playing the part of Grimley Colliery Band in the theatre adaption of the hit film, Brassed Off originally featuring Grimethorpe Colliery Band.

 

Whilst the production is loosely based around the closure of the Grimethorpe pit and the large scale redundancy of miners throughout the Yorkshire region, it is particularly poignant for Blidworth Welfare Band to be performing in this production thirty years on from the closure of Blidworth Colliery.

 

Performances take place at Newark Academy on Wednesday 10th, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th April 2019 from 7.30pm with a matinee performance on Saturday 13th April at 2.30pm and include all the favourite brass band hits from the movie.
