Brassed Off at Chequer Mead


Thursday 5th May 2016 @ 12:08pm by Alex
Categories: Shows, Productions and Events

Brought to you by the team behind "The Rise and Fall of Little Voice" and featuring The Horsham Borough Brass Band, "Brassed Off" tells the much-loved tale, full of heart and humour, of the miners strikes in the 90's.

It's 1994 and the miners are striking as the local colliery faces closure.  Danny's dreams of leading the pit's brass band to victory at a national competition at the Albert Hall seem remote as the men choose between picket lines and redundancy packages.

But when Flugelhorn-playing Gloria returns to her home town the band get their oompah back and romance is rekindled with her childhood sweetheart Andy. However, when the real reason for Gloria's return is revealed and the pressures of the strike get too much for the band members, things start to fall out of tune...

Performances are Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May at 7:30pm.
