Countdown to the Rye Ukulele Festival


It’s the final countdown to the Rye Ukulele Festival.  Only 11 days to go and things are really hotting up in Rye.  The posters/banners are up, the flyers are out, the songs chosen and the bands practicing like mad in Rye, East Grinstead, Lewes, Wadhurst, Headcorn, Doddington, Hastings, Cheriton, Rochester and Deal – waiting to descend on Rye on the 24th May.

The long term weather forecast looks fine (so far) and the bbq and outside bar are being polished up ready for the occasion.

Last minute press releases are beginning to bear fruit with BBC radio interviews and air time this weekend to promote the event.

Tune your radios to BBC Sussex this Sunday at around 4.15pm and again for the Saturday breakfast show on the 23rd between 6am and 9am to hear our slot!
