We had a busy April, playing at another two venues, the first was at Iden’s Ship to Shore Variety show where the Experiment played the matinee and evening performances. The audience joined us singing along with a selection of sea inspired songs and sea shanties!
We followed this by playing at the Heffle Cuckoo Fair at Heathfield a Fair held to raise funds for Demelza Children’s Charity, a really well attended fair with lots of interesting stalls and various events.
We had a great time at all of the April venues we played at and are busy rehearsing ready for our next venue which is the RSPCA Open Day on 28th May at Bluebell Hill in Hastings, check out our What’s On page for future events, looking forward to seeing you there!
In 2016, we played at over 20 events……fairs, festivals, fetes, and open days. The charities we supported included The Music Well, St Michaels Hospice, Dementia Awareness, Sue Ryder, The Sara Lee Trust and the RSPCA. In addition, we independently raised £245.24 for St Michaels Hospice, and £873.64 for The Ukulele Kids Club UK. We met many new friends and had lots of fun along the way!
Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported us and put coins (and notes!) into our buckets. Let’s see if we can improve on that in 2017!
A great festive singsong recently with the lovely people of Iden, after their Seniors Christmas dinner. Thanks to their generous donations, we have another £78.85 going into the St Michaels Hospice pot.
And just to keep us on our toes, last Saturday we were asked to play at the Butter Market as part of the Christmas in Rye Celebrations, a good time was had by all!
We are happy to be playing this evening in the theatre at the ARRCC centre, New Road Rye. We are part of the Sunset Serenade concert raising money for the Dementia Action Alliance.
The concert start at 7:30, would be great to see you there!
