Grimley, a small town {{Oop North}}, is based around two things, the colliery ({{Oop North}}-ish for "coal mine") and the colliery band. Gloria, the granddaughter of a now-deceased bandmember, moves back to Grimley, and becomes the first female band member. At the same time, the mine is threatened by closure, which would result in widespread local unemployment and could effectively kill the town.
