THEATRE OUTING – we enjoyed out first visit to the Coliseum Theatre in Oldham to see ‘Brassed Off’ – a warm-hearted mythical tale of Northern aspiration and achievement, based on the fact (true) that Grimethorpe Colliery Band won the National Brass Band Championship in October, 1992, just days after Grimethorpe Colliery, near Barnsley, had closed. The band is still going strong and won the 2015 British Open championships.
