Brassed Off

Although the coal mine has closed and the band are planning to give up, Gloria gives them money to go to the finals. They win the finals, but Danny makes a speech about the mine closing and refuses the winning trophy (however, Jim takes it anyway).


Factual error: When the band are playing "March of the Cobblers" at Saddleworth, Andy (tenor horn) and Harry (euphonium) are heard playing the main tune of the march. In real life however, these two instruments do not play the tune, they have separate parts for the accompaniment.
