THE writers and stars of BBC mockumentary This Country will be live on stage this Saturday at a special This Country Rocks the Cotswolds event.

The sold-out Q&A session is being held at The Corn Hall in Cirencester from 7pm and will feature Cirencester siblings Daisy and Charlie Cooper, as well as other cast and crew, including Slugs, Martin and Len.

They will be discussing the show, as well as other projects they are involved in.

The show launched in February on BBC Three and pokes fun at the isolated lives of young people in the rural Cotswolds, while Daisy and Charlie are former pupils of Deer Park School.

The pair are currently filming a second series in and around Northleach, which is due to air early 2018.

Rock the Cotswolds, meanwhile, was launched in 2014 as a colourful and creative national campaign to challenge popular misconceptions of the district as little more than a tourist paradise of rolling vistas and pretty villages.

Founder Oli Christie said: “Rock the Cotswolds is all about championing the area, and we love to shine a light on the talent that’s here.

“When we watched This Country, we were blown away by the comedy and pathos of the show.

“Then we realised it was from home-grown talent so we got in touch with Daisy and Charlie.”

Daisy said: “We are so excited to meet everyone who has supported and enjoyed the show.

“Holding this event in our home town means the world to us; Cirencester is where we were born and raised, and got all our material from.”

Compere for the evening is BBC Points West presenter Steve Knibbs, while a donation from ticket sales will go to Cirencester Signpost, a charity which helps homeless people.
