The brass band of a British coal mine, both over 100 years old, from the 1996 indie film Brassed Off. They have a varied repetoire, including "Danny Boy" and Rossini's William Tell Overture. Members include bandleader Danny (Peter Postlewaithe), his son Phil (Stephen Tompkinson) and flugelhorn player Gloria (Tara Fitzgerald).

Now, what's a colliery? Easy, a colliery is where collies are mined.
