Hundreds Participate in Ilkley Moor Filming!

Hundreds of people turned out on a gloriously sunny Ilkley Moor this morning to play their part in the filming of the new Yorkshire Anthem - On Ilkley Moor Bah't 'at. 

The filming is the latest part in the making of a new video song about our famous Moor.  Brian Blessed has already recording some of the lyrics (see below) as have several local choirs.  Soldiers from the Yorkshire Regiment joined the town crier and local residents throwing their hats in the air and singing along.  Funds raised will go towards the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.  

More news about the release soon!
