Where are we playing next?

Brassed Off, Queen Mother Theatre and Hitchin Band We are proud to present Hitchin Band playing along LIVE to hit film Brassed Off as the film is shown.

Musical Director, Graham Chambers, has toiled at the coal face to extract the best from his band of merry players. The film, rated 15, is about the conductor of a colliery brass band who has difficulty maintaining the morale of his musicians when the local coal mine is threatened with closure. When a former resident, Gloria, returns to assess the mine, she gets involved with her former flame and with the band, joining them in their last hurrah at a national competition.

Tickets for this show are 10 in advance and 12 on the door - so it really pays to book early!
