More news from Creswell Colliery Brass Band

A busy summer season for Creswell Colliery Brass Band comes to an end on Friday 27th September with the screening of a documentary about the band. "Underground Music" produced by Ian Nesbitt in 2012 will be shown at St Vincent's Club, Solly Street, Sheffield S1 4BS as part of the Sensoria festival, and will feature live music from the band.

The film is a collaboration between filmmaker and band and looks at the idiosyncratic culture of brass banding at least 20 years after most of the pits serving the bands closed for good. It examines ideas of individuality, collectivism and community through the eyes of band members.

The event runs from 7pm to 9.30pm and tickets are priced at £3 (£5 on the door).
