Never miss another 'Grimethorpe Colliery Band' show
Grimethorpe Colliery Band
"The story of Grimethorpe has become one of legend since the bands original formation by members of the disbanded Cudworth Colliery Band in 1917. Since then there has evolved a story full of drama and success in the face of adversity unmatched by any other brass band in the world!
From their conception Grimethorpe have been regular competitors in national and international competitions, more often than not taking first prize and never coming lower than 5th in their entire career!"
Info provided by the Event Organiser
The Grimethorpe Colliery band was formed in 1917 as a leisure activity for the workmen at the colliery. International fame came to the band with the making of the 1995 film Brassed Off. Since the release of the film the band has toured extensively in Europe, including a film festival in Norway, the World Cup in Paris and the Eurovision Song Contest to an estimated television audience of 50 million!
The band was honoured to appoint Dr Robert Childs as Principal Conductor and Music Director in January 2014.
