D’UkesFest is Back for 2016
After a year’s break, this summer sees the return of our popular D’UkesFest Festival. It is back in Hornchurch for the third time at the Queen’s Theatre. The festival promises an afternoon of ukulele fun organised by D’Ukes and including performances showcasing ukulele acts, ukulele workshops, stalls and much more, ending in a mass ukulele Jam!
The aim of the festival is to encourage people of all ages to play the ukulele. So if you are learning the ukulele or received one as a present and don’t know how to play it, then pick up your uke and come along! In the beginners’ workshop, members of D’Ukes will teach basic chords and strumming. We are also planning a ‘taster’ session for those people thinking of taking up the instrument. This is a family friendly festival and an opportunity for those people interested in the ukulele to try it out and meet up with other uke enthusiasts and have a jam. In any case put the date in your calendar!
