The Only Uke Is Essex…

D'Ukes Festival - 26 July 2014, Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch, Essex

D’Ukes Festival – 26 July 2014, Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch, Essex

The Mighty Ukulele monthly email of uke events in & around London alerted me to a free afternoon ukulele festival at the Queen’s Theatre, near the easternmost end of the District Line, out in Essex.  Facilitated by a seven-piece Chelmsford-based electro-uke band called the D’Ukes, it was a pleasant & relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

There were around half a dozen stalls from local music shops selling ukes, mandolins & banjos; accessories & music books plus an info stall with lists of local ukulele clubs. One stall had a free hourly draw to win an electronic tuner & I was lucky enough to win the first one (probably because I was the only person paying attention when the initial announcement was made!).

Q/ What do you call a woman with a uke on her head?  A/ Tricity Vogue

On Sunday 29 September, Tricity Vogue‘s Ukulele Cabaret & Workshop returns to The Albany, Douglas Way, Deptford, London SE8 4AG. It’s £7 for show only, £12 for workshop & show. The workshop runs 4.30 – 6.30pm, show 7 – 9pm.

Once again, PLUC’s Uncle Rufus will be there performing along with Nick Browning & Tricity. Other acts include Ewan Wardrop & trio, the Sugar Sisters.

The grand finale will be a mass performance by the Albany All Stars – everyone who’s just attended that afternoon’s workshop will play a huge group medley.

I attended last year & it was great fun! The workshop splits you into beginners & more advanced – some people had never touched a uke before. It’s a good way of finding out what it’s like to perform in front of an audience (I can just be spotted at the back in the videos!).

Bring your own uke &, if you have one, music stand (so you’re more comfortable looking at the music – we were in a room without tables last time).

Tricity Vogue's Ukulele Cabaret - Albany, Deptford - 10 June 2012

Sun 10 June 2012 saw Tricity Vogue’s Ukulele Cabaret visit the Albany, Deptford. Starring Tricity, Nick Browning & PLUC’s very own Rufus Yells, there were also a number of other fine acts, including Banjo Dez, Clare Uchima & The Dulwich Ukulele Club. For the finale, folk had been invited to turn up with their ukuleles for a pre-show workshop & perform as the Albany All Stars. All great fun!
