Event description

Come celebrate the association between brass bands and coal mining with the return of the Bold as Brass Contest. 12 bands will perform over the course of the free event, taking part in a 6-minute march across the museum site before a 20-minute set. You, the audience, will have the chance to cast your vote in the People's Choice competition!

In addition to the fantastic music, there will be street food available and the opportunity to see a silk banner - synonymous with mining heritage - painted. No booking or registering is required, so bring the whole family down to the National Coal Mining Museum for England for what promises to be a fantastic day out!
