A simple instrument for musical freedom

The Ukulele Orchestra

The Ukulele Orchestra

Have your say

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain comes to The Hawth, Crawley on Thursday, January 30, at 7.30pm as it continues to delight audiences up and down the country.

The Ukulele Orchestra started as a bit of fun in 1985. The first gig, intended as a one-off, was an instant sell-out. Since then, the orchestra has given thousands of concerts, TV and radio appearances all over the world.

The six to eight members of the orchestra use the limitations of their ukuleles to create musical freedom. They play instruments both small and large, in high and low registers, while sitting in chamber group format, dressed in formal evening wear.
