It's music that matters!

Updated: Dec 17, 2019

What a superb week we've just had with our friends at Blackburn Drama Club performing Brassed Off.

The play for me was a double delight: I enjoyed the film, and I love brass band music. To have the two in the same production was wonderful.

I had not heard the Blackburn and Darwen Brass Band before, but I certainly won’t mind seeing and hearing them again. We had superb playing of the music and it was absolutely right for the play. They gave extra life to this play which might have descended into a kitchen sink drama had it not been for a superb cast and a superb storyline, and a polemic against the pit closure programme instigated by the government of the day in the 1990s.

Never once were we overwhelmed by the brass band playing.

With the story centred around a brass band it is fitting to have a special mention to this brass band in particular who not only performed the music from the show, but also did a bit of acting themselves as well. The competition in Saddleworth being a particular highlight! The music was provided by Blackburn & Darwen Brass Band who played superbly and really heightened every single emotion from the show.
