To commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day this November, the Union Theatre is proud to present the professional premiere of Benjamin Till’s Award Winning musical, Brass.

Based on real stories, real people and years of history that will not be forgotten, we follow the stories of a Leeds amateur brass band who enlist together to fight in World War I and the women who must pick up the pieces in the munitions factory while they await their boys’ return.

Gaining 5 star reviews and receiving Best Musical in 2014, this heartfelt tale set between Leeds and the frontline is one of love, loss and the futilities of war.
