Formed in 1917, during the First World War, Grimethorpe Colliery Band is a British institution.

The legendary brass band, described by late composer, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies as, “the finest jewel in the world of brass bands, and a unique cultural asset”, have performed shows all across the world and Blackpool’s Grand Theatre marks their latest destination.

Grimethorpe’s diverse noted concert performances include those at the FIFA World Cup, BAFTA Awards, BBC Proms, Eurovision and London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, together with a wealth of national and international television/radio appearances and professional recordings.

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 for which Grimethorpe was the focal point.
