FOR one night only, the writers and stars of offbeat BBC Three mockumentary This Country were live on stage in a special Q&A event.

Organised by Rock the Cotswolds, and held at The Corn Hall in Cirencester, the This Country Rocks the Cotswolds event had been a sell-out for weeks.

The hit comedy was conceived by Cirencester siblings, Daisy and Charlie Cooper, as their unique take on the lives of young people in modern rural Britain.

The talented duo, who attended Deer Park School, also still live in the town, while the audience in many cases came from far and wide.

In the first episode, Daisy’s character Kerry Mucklowe declares: “I got enemies in South Cerney, I got enemies in North Cerney, I got enemies in Cerney Wick.

"I got enemies in Bourton-on-the-Water.”

And the audience on Saturday night weren’t going to let the gag go.

One person yelled from that back of the hall: “Got any enemies in Blunsdon?” and Charlie, aka Kurtan Mucklowe, yelled back: “No, but I went to Blunsdon market once and it was a bit sh*t.”

Also on stage during the two-hour evening, which was compered by BBC Points West reporter Steve Knibbs, were series’ director Tom George and producer Simon Mayhew-Archer.

There were also a host of cast members: Slugs, (Michael Sleggs), the vicar (Paul Chahidi) and Martin Mucklowe (Paul Cooper, who is Daisy and Charlie’s dad in real life).

The audience were also treated to some never-been-seen-before clips of the upcoming second series, currently being filmed in Northleach and other parts of the district.

Oli Christie, Rock the Cotswolds, said: “Rock the Cotswolds showcases Cotswold talent, and Daisy and Charlie have it in spades.

“They were funny and engaging, and it was fascinating to hear how the series got started from the director and producer as well as key cast members.

“We can’t wait for the next series.”

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