Playing for the Scallop Festival

Last week saw the return of The Scallop Festival in Rye and RUE enjoyed playing a variety of Sea related songs for our lovely audience.  Also our very talented crew performed solo spots and some songs written especially for the evening by Floris.

Thanks to Jonathan and his team at the Queens Head for the delicious scallop dishes and thanks also to the brilliant support from our audience and their generosity towards The Ukulele Kids Charity UK.   Below is a photo of some of the Band with Olly Campion who organises the festival and supports this website with his technical knowledge for us.

2016 – What A Year!

20160925_1148491

In 2016, we played at over 20 events……fairs, festivals, fetes, and open days. The charities we supported included The Music Well, St Michaels Hospice, Dementia Awareness, Sue Ryder, The Sara Lee Trust and the RSPCA. In addition, we independently raised £245.24 for St Michaels Hospice, and £873.64 for The Ukulele Kids Club UK. We met many new friends and had lots of fun along the way!

Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported us and put coins (and notes!) into our buckets. Let’s see if we can improve on that in 2017!
