WIN: Tickets to see Brassed Off and live bands at Clevedon’s Curzon
PUBLISHED: 17:12 06 March 2019 | UPDATED: 17:12 06 March 2019
A one-off showing of a popular 1990s romantic comedy depicting the troubles of a brass band following a pit closure will be shown at the Curzon cinema.
Brassed Off, a beloved 1990s romantic comedy, will be supported with a performance from the North Somerset Community Brass and Clevedon Brass Band.
The live brass band will be performing before the film to get people into the mood for the rousing and distinctly British romantic comedy starring Ewan McGregor, Pete Postlethwaite and Tara Fitzgerald.
The village of Grimley struggles with pit closures, 10 years after the year-long strike of 1984-85 by the National Union of Mineworkers in Britain.
Attempting to retain a sense of community in their brass band, a young horn player named Andy (McGregor) falls in love with his childhood sweetheart Gloria (Fitzgerald), who recently returned to the area.
But Gloria’s return home is not as innocent as it first appears, with plans to determine the profitability of the pit for the management of British Coal.
Brassed Off and North Somerset Community Brass and Clevedon Brass Band will be at the Curzon, in Old Church Road, on March 31 at 1.30pm.
Tickets, priced £7.50-9, are available at www.curzon.org.uk
