The newly formed Kensington and Harold colliery band has been slammed as ‘patronising’ by the National Union of Miners.
The musicians have no connection with mining, the nearest pit is 135 miles to the north. But that didn’t stop the group reaching the semi-final of this year’s Scargill Testimonial Band Play-off.
With most of the musicians working in IT or finance, forming a colliery band may not have seemed an obvious choice.
