Alternative Sibelius – Ukulele Workshops & Concert
Once again, we see the beginning of the festival season. Last week PLUC played its regular spot at the Pratts Bottom Village Fete. On Sat 23 May we perform again at the Hither Green Festival. Get in quickly if you want tickets for this year’s show!
There are several ukulele festivals coming up. Locally, the Finnish Church at Rotherhithe is holding a weekend of events on 6 – 7 June as part of this year’s Alternative Sibelius celebrations. This includes some workshops for children & adults, plus a concert on the Sunday. A little further afield, on Sun 24 May there’s the Rye Ukulele Festival from 12.30pm, which culminates in a Big Busk at 5pm (songbook & more details on their website).
As ever, check out the Mighty Ukulele site & join their newsletter for other local happenings or let us know if you spot or attend any interesting festivals, workshops or events.
Here’s some Finlandia played on the cavaquinho at the Fnnish Church:
