Full Monty Stars return to Fox Valley On 20th Anniversary

 

It is exactly 20 years since the release of the multi- award winning feature film ‘The Full Monty.’ 

The Steelworks brass band that appeared in the film make their long awaited return to the site of their old rehearsal room at Fox Valley.

 UES Stocksbridge Engineering Steels Band as they were then called, were sponsored by the company and very proud to wear the Samuel Fox iconic symbol emblazened brightly on their uniforms, stand banners and programmes of the day. Samuel Fox & Co was one of the companies that formed part of United Engineering Steels.

Following closure of the factory, which was the backdrop to the film The Full Monty, the band are now known as Unite the Union Brass Band.  The band’s ensemble will perform on two occasions at Fox Valley in December.

In addition to their role in The Full Monty, members of the Unite the Union Band have appeared on worldwide hit records, award winning documentaries and on virtually every mainstream UK television broadcast station. They have toured internationally, have featured live at many of the world’s most iconic music venues including The Royal Albert Hall, Sheffield Arena, Wembley Conference Centre and have completed a highly successful 21 day tour of Australia performing 12 concerts from coast to coast. Collectively, they are virtuoso musicians offering a thrilling musical experience that guarantees to leave your audience hungry for more.

Around the globe there are Brass Bands that have won major competitions, there are Brass Bands that have made great recordings, there are even a few Brass Bands that have done all of the above and appeared on Film & TV too!

If you’re looking to be thrilled with a band that’s been there, done that and featured in an Oscar winning, BAFTA scooping, Box Office busting movie, there’s a choice of one, yes just one in the whole wide world………
