Dr David Thornton Musical Director

This concert is sponsored by Ian & Fiona Codd

Sir Peter Maxwell Davies described the Grimethorpe Colliery Band as “the finest jewel in the world of brass bands, and a unique cultural asset”. Formed in 1917 they are a British institution. National and British Open Champions on numerous occasions, the band’s contest successes remain legendary. Grimethorpe’s diverse concert performances include those at the FIFA World Cup, BAFTA Awards, BBC Proms, Eurovision and the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.

The band has been the recipient of two gold discs, as well as a BAFTA nomination for its contributions to the global hit movie Brassed Off. In addition to continuing to delight audiences across the globe, Grimethorpe also continues to invest in and support its local community in Grimethorpe, Barnsley and South Yorkshire, particularly through its youth music initiatives and community performances, both locally and on a national scale.
