D’Ukulele Festival is back! On Saturday 17 May at 12 noon the doors of the Cramphorn Theatre, Chelmsford are flung open to welcome ukulele lovers to the third annual D’Ukulele Festival. Organised by D’Ukes, this afternoon of fun and learning features several local ukulele acts, stalls, a beginners workshop and a jam session to round of the afternoon. Entrance is £3. The festival is followed by an evening concert performed by D’Ukes.

D’Ukes on Channel 4! D’Ukes have just made the second TV appearance of their career – on Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me! Performing I Want To Marry A Lighthouse Keeper, the band entertained Anthony Street’s guests as he made a valiant attempt to win the show’s £1,000 prize.

D’Ukes announce Tour De France performance! Yes, as the world’s most famous bicycle race wends its way through Essex, D’Ukes will be performing in Chignal Road on the morning of 7 July 2014 as the cyclists pedal furiously down Chelmsford’s only participating street.
