Filming for BBC's "Happy Valley"

Published on 23 February 2017

Despite being filmed in December 2015 and being aired in March 2016 we are still getting messages asking if it was Swede Dreamz someone had just spotted on BBC's "Happy Valley". Well done and yes it was! The band was invited to take part in filming a scene for the award-winning BBC One drama "Happy Valley" which stars Sarah Lancashire and James Norton in December 2015. A mega early start was in order to get to Huddersfield, West Yorkshire at 7.00am and filming of a tribute "night" at a local Italian restaurant from 8.30am.

It was fascinating to see how the crew works their magic on creating an "evening" scene during daylight hours. The band had the pleasure of meeting Sarah during takes and can confirm she really is as delightful as she is on the TV.

Performing "Dancing Queen" and "Waterloo", the band now appear in the opening scenes of series two episode five on the "Happy Valley" box set.

The band would like to thank everyone at Grappolo Italian Restaurant in Huddersfield and all the TV production crew for looking after us so well throughout the day.
