The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.


The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain will perform two festive concerts, and are inviting fellow uke players to join in.

The orchestra is full of singing and strumming ukulele players who believe all genres of music can be re-interpreted.

Using their ukuleles re-imagine folk and rock songs, and classical music.

The orchestra dates back to 1985 when a show in London, intended as a one-off, ended up being sold out.

Since then, they have performed for the royal family and collaborated with The Kaiser Chiefs.

In the With Bells On show, audience members will be
able to play or sing along to some of the Christmas numbers.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain will perform at the Theatre Royal Bath, in Sawclose, on Sunday at 3pm and 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £24-26, are available from or 01225 448844.
