THE award-winning Grimethorpe Colliery Band will perform at Royal & Derngate on Saturday.

Since the band’s original formation by members of the disbanded Cudworth Colliery Band in 1917, Grimethorpe have been regular competitors in national and international competitions.

Their appeal dates back to 1992 when the government announced details of nationwide pit closures five days before the band were due to take part in the final of the National Brass Band Championships.

Further fame and recognition followed in 1996 when they featured on the soundtrack of the film Brassed Off.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets cost £21 and £19.50 in advance. Visit www.
