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.
The weather looks set fine for the Rye Maritime Festival 2015 tomorrow at Strand Quay, Rye.
The Rye Ukulele Orchestra and Experiment will be performing a great selection of their favourite numbers from 12.15 onwards. We will also be featuring special sections from the Ukuladies, Alison Catt& Co and Mrs Hall’s Buoys. Come along and join us.

Thanks to the organisers of the festival for finding us such a nice spot to play in and thanks to the public for their great support.
