UK chart-topping Scrumpy and Western band The Wurzels are set to play a new festival at Westbury to raise funds for the town’s youngsters.

The Somerset-based group are coming to Westbury for a very special event taking place at Heywood House on Saturday, August 5.

The first Countryville event is a fundraiser for the Westbury and Warminster Youth Club.

The youth club’s manager, Beth Mullins said: “Every year funding gets harder and harder to come by.

“The youth clubs work is vital working with some of the most vulnerable but equally some of the most inspiring young people.

“Fundraising is vital if we are to keep this service for Westbury and Warminster running.”

The Wurzels are an English Scrumpy and Western band famed for their number one hit "The Combine Harvester" and top 10 hit "I Am a Cider Drinker”.

They are known for using the West Country phrase "ooh arr!" and calling young people "young 'uns" in songs such as "I Am a Cider Drinker" and "The Combine Harvester".

Performing a career spanning set consisting of the hits, stories and jokes from a career lasting more than 50 years, The Wurzels continue to play over 100 sell-out shows and festivals every year.

Their quintessentially West Country cover of the Kaiser Chiefs’ ‘Ruby’ has been a massive show favourite of late.

An event like this has never been done before at Heywood House, with The Wurzels performing live alongside special guest performers, a kids area, cider tent and Tug of War Championship.

The 15th century country estate will welcome teams from across the region to participate in Tug of War and other country games like Welly wanging and toss the marrow!

Local sports teams, businesses, gyms and community groups are all invited to take part.

A special children’s area will also be onsite so the whole family can enjoy a day out. Locally produced country food, stalls and the iconic Wurzels are set to make this a ‘must visit’ event of the summer.
