    Newstead Brass are getting ‘Brassed Off’ as they join with the Mansfield Palace Community Theatre group this week for four performances of the heart-warming tale of ‘Gloria and the Grimley Colliery Band’. The play has been adapted by Paul Allen from the famous film screenplay by Mark Herman.

    The story is one the Newstead band can well relate to after they were forced to relocate from Hucknall to Newstead in 1988 following closure of local collieries and associated miners welfares. Many of the band’s players also took part in the professional national tour of ‘Brassed Off’ in 1999.

    A band spokesman commented, “Newstead Brass are always keen to work with local community groups and this looks like being a great production which will hopefully introduce the band to new audiences.”

    Performances take place at the Mansfield Palace Theatre (Leeming Street, NG18 1NG) from Thursday 9th to Saturday 11th June at 7.30 pm each evening with a 2.30 pm matinee on Saturday. Tickets cost £6.50 each and can be obtained by calling 01623 633133 or
