The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

IT’S ABOUT PLUCKING TIME!

Armed with endless Ukulele and more pop culture songs than you can shake a stick at, this no strings attached concert pushes the boundaries of just what you can expect to hear from these magnificent instruments. They may be the smaller guitars in the string family, but united by the vast skills of George Hinchliffe’s orchestra, this talented troupe proves that size doesn’t matter!

The world’s very first Ukulele Orchestra is not just about ukuleles; it is about entertainment, joy, fun, strum and artistry. These dexterous performers have played alongside iconic artists such as Robbie Williams, Madness, Clean Bandit, Cat Stevens and The Ministry of Sound, just to name a few.

Imagine your favourite songs transformed by a symphony of Ukuleles, suddenly Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, Sex Pistols’ Anarchy In The UK and Daft Punk’s Get Lucky take on a whole new form; a rendition that will leave audiences smiling throughout the whole evening.
