Christmas carols, music & shows

Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain With Bells On

White Rock Theatre, White Rock, Hastings

Thursday November 15, 7.30pm

Tickets £26/Friends and groups 8+ £4.50 off

The original ukulele orchestra, the group that made the uke cool, the band who gave us uke mania, invite you to join them in a bit of festive frivolity. This is definitely not shameless seasonal cashing in – just a little midwinter mischief and the chance to play or sing a-long with the odd well-worn Christmas classic. Watch the tutorials online, learn the parts and join in live.
