  Black Dyke and Cory have been booked to return to Symphony Hall in early 2019

Following the success of Grimethorpe Colliery's live performance accompanying a special screening of the hit film 'Brassed Off!' on the eve of the British Open this year, Symphony Hall has confirmed that they will be hosting two further brass band concerts in the first half of 2019.

Black Dyke

Yorkshire Area triple champions Black Dyke will provide a 'Music for Everyone' concert on the afternoon of Sunday 20th January (2.30pm) at Symphony Hall, with repertoire from Wilfred Heaton to Goff Richards as well as easy listening favourites that will conclude with a rousing rendition of 1812 Overture.
