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.
