This year’s Easter Play by Whitby Amateur Dramatic Society is Brassed Off which runs at Whitby Pavilion from April 15 to 18.

Grimley Colliery is set to close as the accountants say there’s more money in it shut than open, even after redundancy payments.

It means 1200 job losses, a dying town and the loss of its brass band.

But under the leadership of Danny, coughing with coal-dusted lungs, the band is somehow transformed into British champions with local lass Gloria whipping up the money needed to get them to the Albert Hall.
