RYE MARITIME FESTIVAL 2015

This year’s Maritime Festival was a perfect afternoon.  Bright blue skies, hot sunshine, a waterside venue and our own little camp where we set up a bar and picnic to keep us going through the afternoon.

The Orchestra played their usual toe-tapping sets but, for the first time, we were pleased to introduce three new feature sections from the Ukuladies, Ali Catt & Co and Mrs Hall’s Buoys.

Our thanks go to all who supported us by throwing money in the St Michael’s Hospice bucket.  We raised a considerable sum of money – yet to be confirmed.  We’re also grateful to all those who stopped to listen and gave us such great rounds of applause.  Lastly thanks to the organisers for such a wonderful event.
