The world renowned Grimethorpe Colliery Band are returning to Deeping St James on Saturday.

It is the 28th consecutive year the band, immortalised in the hugely popular film Brassed Off, have played in the Deepings.

The band are performing a Christmas concert at the Deepings Leisure Centre (6.30pm for 7pm).

The community event has become one of the major features of the Deepings festive calendar, and is organised and presented by the Rotary Club of the Deepings.

The concert typically attracts hundreds of people from far and wide as it is a real treat for people in the district to be able to hear such accomplished musicians locally. Last year, Grimethorpe won the British Open brass band championships for the sixth time in the band’s illustrious history.

The price for tickets has been held at £19.50, which includes a programme, entry into a raffle and a glass of wine and mince pie.

Tickets are available from the Deepings Leisure Centre at Deeping St James, the Spar Shop in Market Deeping, Co-operative Travel in The Precinct in Market Deeping, and Oakwood Financial Services in High Street, Market Deeping. For further information ring 01778 343927.
