Rye Bay Scallop Week 20th – 28th February

rye-bay-scallop-weekAnother load of scallops rolls around again.  It doesn’t seem a year!

To celebrate 2016 the Rye Ukulele Experiment will be performing their famous fish themed set list (well fish, beach, seaside, water – anything we can think of really) at the Queens Head in Rye on Tuesday 23rd February 2016.   There will also be special ‘spots’ throughout the evening for Ali Catt & Co, Bob and the good old boys, Au Reservoir and the Ukulele Ladies.

We will kick off at 7.30pm with all welcome to pop in and listen.  Jonathan will also be serving some scallop/fishy themed nibbles during the evening to get us in the mood.  As the local saying goes – It’s shucking time again!

The generous people of Rye

Last night’s cheque presentation to St Michael’s Hospice from the Rye Ukulele Orchestra.

Centre stage – Ian Burford, long standing member of the group and our MD was delighted to present Bruni Lovett with a cheque for just over £600.  The money was raised at the various busking and booked events that we played last year and exceeded our expectations considerably.  It is heart-warming that people are so generous for such a worth-while cause.  Bruni stayed the course and listed to a bit of rehearsal – brave lady.

Thanks to all those who contributed so generously in 2015.  We’d love to try and beat the amount this year.
