There will be some welcome brass band national media coverage this weekend when Witney Town Band will appear on the BBC's flagship 'Countryfile' programme on Sunday evening (31st May) at 7.15pm.

Viewed

The band from West Oxfordshire recently made a VE Day isolation performance video which was viewed over 40,000 times around the world, whilst their first effort (which happened to be the 'Countryfile' theme tune) was secretly passed onto the programme's production team who loved it so much they asked the band to appear on the show.

There is an interview with presenter John Craven who talks about the history of the band which includes an appearance at Enderby Jackson's 'National Contest' at Crystal Palace in 1860.

We have loved putting together these isolation pieces and it has genuinely kept us all so connected and we hope you'll tune into Countryfile on SundayWitney Town Band

Excited

Band spokesperson Lynne Whitley told 4BR: "We are beyond excited and grateful for the opportunity.

We have loved putting together these isolation pieces and it has genuinely kept us all so connected and we hope you'll tune into Countryfile on Sunday."
