Fresh from sell-out shows all over the UK, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain performs at The Central Theatre in Chatham for the first time on Friday, 25 April, 7.30pm. First seen at The Brook Theatre in Chatham as part of Fuse, Medway Festival, the orchestra has enjoyed triumphant appearances on Jools Holland’s Hootenanny on BBC2, The Today Programme, Richard and Judy, Loose Ends, Start the Week and Never Mind the Buzzcock’s Christmas Special. The all-strumming, all-singing Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, perform unique, fun re-workings of rock ‘n’ roll, punk, jazz and classical music. From Charlie Parker to the Sex Pistols, through Johann Sebastian Bach, the orchestra takes its audience on an unforgettable musical tour, armed only with ukuleles of various shapes and sizes, a menagerie of voices, and great comic timing. Tickets cost £15 and £14 and are available from the Box Office on 01634 338338 or online at www.medway.gov.uk/theatres.
