Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain with Bells On

Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has become a global sensation and nothing short of a UK national treasure.

Their new show charts the Uke's rise from curiosity to virtuosity, from village hall to the Royal Albert Hall. Not only this but given the time of year the Ukes are adding a little festive frivolity to the show. This is definitely not shameless seasonal cashing in, just a little midwinter mischief and a chance for the audience to play or sing-a-long to the odd well known Christmas number. Watch the tutorials online (click here), learn the parts and join in live.

On an ongoing "hand-luggage only" world tour, the Ukes provide pure entertainment, dead-pan British humour and irresistible foot-tapping music. They are masters of the unexpected, whether re-imagining Christmas carols, twisting classical music favourites or uncovering quirky versions of rock covers.

“Iconoclastic. Unabashed genre crashing antics. Nothing is spoof proof.”

Sunday Times

“Most people have to die before they become immortal. These ukulele superstars have no such worries.”
