    The South West Trains Woodfalls Band is proud to announce that it has been approached by Radio 2 to feature on the “Chris Evans Drivetime Show” on Thursday 7th December.

    The opportunity arose through the “UK tour” segment on the popular Radio 2 Drivetime show. Three locations were randomly chosen, with local Radio 2 listeners then encouraged to outline the reasons why the show should be broadcast from each location.

    The SWT Woodfalls Band featured heavily in the pitch from Woodfalls. This allowed the village to successfully beat off competition from the other locations to host Chris Evans and his show. The SWT Woodfalls Band will be featured on the show along with the popular group, the Magic Numbers.

    The show will be broadcast from the Woodfalls Inn, Woodfalls beginning at 5pm through until 7pm.

    SWT Woodfalls band welcomes this opportunity to represent not only Woodfalls village, but also the Brass Band movement in general. Hopefully this will provide greater exposure for Brass Bands in the mainstream media and generate further publicity for the movement throughout the country.

    Cheers Guys!

    We had a bit of a giggle doing it!
    Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to mention tMP on air! Everyone seemed to be pleased with what we did though. Maybe next time?!
