British classic Brassed Off comes to the Royal Albert Hall for a special screening with live accompaniment by the brass band that inspired the story.
This 1996 bittersweet comedy drama, written and directed by Mark Herman, stars Pete Postlethwaite as Danny, the devoted leader of the Grimley Colliery Band, who is determined to show the Tories ‘we are not defeated’. Ewan McGregor, Stephen Tompkinson and Tara Fitzgerald are stand-outs in an impressive ensemble cast.
Relive a piece of British cinema history as the Grimethorpe Colliery Band and members of the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra perform the score live at the iconic venue at the film’s heart, alongside the film on the big screen.
This special screening will be preceded by an on-stage Q&A hosted by Jim Carter, with cast members including Tara Fitzgerald, Stephen Tompkinson, Philip Jackson, Mary Healey, Sue Johnston, Melanie Hill, Writer/Director Mark Herman and Producer Steve Abbott.
