Fodens on BBC 1 Friday 21st December at 6.30pm

Posted by Mark Wilkinson on 14 December 2012

Following an invitation from BBC 1 Fodens Band will be appearing live on the 'Christmas Edition' of 'Look North West' to be broadcast at 6.30pm on Friday 21st December.
Speaking about the invitation Mark Wilkinson said 'This recent invitation from the BBC follows our appearance on the programme after winning the Double in October as well as a live performance on Radio 3 'In Tune' to an estimated 2 million listeners. Fodens were also due to travel to Pinewood studios on the 18th December to record a new tv programme featuring David Walliams and Frank Skinner but due to David withdrawing from the show at short notice the bbc had to cancel a number of planned programmes due to the availability of the new presenter, unfortunately one of these programmes featured us. The invitation to appear on TV and radio not only raises the profile of Fodens to a wider audience but also gives Brass Bands some much needed national publicity. 

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
