The Lydbrook Band has just finished filming for an upcoming episode of the popular BBC Programme, Countryfile.
It will be aired on 20th October in a programme featuring the Forest of Dean where the band is based.
The BBC approached Lydbrook after learning of their successful summer 'Proms in the Quarry' event in partnership with their sponsors, Forest of Dean Stone Firms.
Filming took place in their own band room with interviews with Margherita Taylor sharing Lydbrook's long history and involvement in the community, before heading to the firm's quarry at Broadwell for three hours of afternoon filming complete with drone cameras.
CEO, Nick Horton ensured everyone was kitted out in hard hats and hi-vis jackets whilst the band wore full stage uniforms and wellies to record the march 'Lydbrook',' Post Horn Galop', with soloist Phil Turner and the Countryfile theme tune under MD Ian Holmes, all positioned under the arch of two large diggers.

A spokesperson told 4BR: "The quarry provided a superb natural amphitheatre with the afternoon sun glowing off the natural stone whilst the production team recorded and filmed."
Presenters Margherita Taylor and Matt Baker were more than happy to chat and have photos taken and the band now looks forward to seeing the end result on a show that regularly attracts over 5 million viewers.
