Wednesday 29 June 2011: TURNED OUT NICE AGAIN!
My place of work has, this year, sponsored a local music festival. I managed to win some tickets, through work, to go and see The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.
The event was sold out and the audience comprised of very differing age groups (although I did wonder if some of the nonegenarians really appreciated their version of Hawkwind's Silver Machine).
However, I should imagine they were somewhat appeased by the end of the evening as they did play Leaning on a Lampost (albeit a very different version to that of George Formby).
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening and if you ever have the chance to go and see them do so. They are all very talented musicians (who can all sing too) with a fantastic sense of humour.
This picture is not what if could be but I was hampered by the fact that one of the stewards was standing right next to me throughout the performance and it was hard to ignore the announcements, over the loudspeaker system, that stated the use of cameras was forbidden (I seem to have had a bit of difficulty with my hearing though).
