Does enybody know witch march that are used in the Big parade episode. I think it is realy cool
Not sure how long it will be good for but here’s a link to hear the March:


I don’t recall ever playing this, but if it interests children or parents in music then that’s good - glad the OP likes it. Perhaps, now that there is a link to the piece, someone might identify it.

Don't know it, but it sounds like Sousa?

Edit: Listened through it all now - less sold on Sousa as a diagnosis. It's a bit more circussy than that. Hmm...

Yes, it kind of has that feel about it. I thought Circus parade music and that would tie in with Sousa and a (USA) Marching Wind Band. Of course it might just be a piece, a short tune, that’s the creation of someone associated with the ‘Duggee’ production. Whatever, if the tune can be identified then that’s good but if not then enjoy it anyway. Let’s hope that it inspires some child or parent to take up playing and join the Parade :) - Bands all over the country are waiting to welcome them and happy to teach them to play .

Well, it isn't one of the 75 marches in the first four volumes of The Complete Marches of John Philip Sousa that the US Marine Band's uploaded to YouTube...

You might try emailing the BBC, they are usually very helpful with stuff like that, though I have just asked the question to them on twitter @HEYDUGGEE

I picked up a bit 76 Trombones from the "Music Man" By Meredith Wilson
He also wrote a march called "Chicken Fat" it might be that?

The OP or some other interested party might like to contact this company who apparently are responsible for the music in Hey Duggie : Tin : Tinsounds .

Having listened to the ‘March’ a few times now I find it a bit of an ‘ear worm’. Maybe a bit of a silly little tune but if it gets the kids marching around the room and thinking about playing then that’s great.

Wikipedia says that the music for "Hey Duggee" is composed by "Tin Sounds," which according to their website "are a music team specialising in original composition for film and television, commercials, online content, sound design and songwriting." Their contact email address, per their website, is: info@tinsounds.co.uk.

It's a catchy little march. To me it sounds more American than British in style. It would be great if Tin Sounds would release or authorize a Brass Band arrangement of this march. Any good music that helps youngsters come to understand the importance of live music (as opposed to what Sousa called "canned music" is a good thing.
