Uncertain Future For Grimethorpe Brass Band

Tuesday January 8 2013



A GRIMETHORPE brass band's future is under threat, due to a lack of funding. 

The band - which was the inspiration for the 90s film Brassed Off - has lost sponsorship money and is surviving only on income from performance bookings.

Michael Dugher, MP, says Grimethorpe Colliery is facing an uncertain future.

He added: ''Brass bands are an important part of our heritage, but when it comes to funding and grants, they're clearly undervalued and underappreciated.''

About time they learnt to blow their own trumpet and did more fundraising!
