Thank you so much Justine! We are so grateful for the support and generosity of the Rye Ukulele Group. You have donated the “gift of music” to many hospitalized children with this amazing donation.
With deep appreciation always

All you need is a Ukulele Festival!

What a amazing day we had last Saturday, all the bands were fantastic and so was the weather.  It was great to see all our ukulele friends enjoying themselves along with everyone else that came for a great day.  I want to say a big Hello and Thank You for coming to Miina and Tiina from Finland, who came especially for the event! Along with having lots of fun you very generous people gave  an  phenomenal £504.94 for The Ukulele Kids Club UK, Thank you so much.

All the photos we have received so far of the day you can find under Festival 2017 Photo Gallery on this website, more will be added as they come in.  Also lots of videos of the bands on our Facebook page and also on YouTube.  Just to say once again thank you for coming and making our Festival 2017 such a success!
