Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

The world-renowned all-singing, all-plucking superstars return with their toe-tapping music, hilarious banter, and sheer superlative entertainment. Last year they celebrated “30 Plucking Years” of ukulele action, this year they will have been active for “One Billion Seconds.” See for yourself why the Ukes of GB (the original Ukulele Orchestra, the oldest and the best) and their entertaining, witty, shopping trolley dash through all genres of music has led to sold-out shows all over the world. Critics, trying to encapsulate the group’s indefinable magic and joy, have heralded the group as “the best musical entertainment.”

  • The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain counts these celebrities amongst its noted fans: Michael Palin, Timothy West, Bette Midler, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Michael Gambon, and Jeremy Paxman.
  • The Orchestra was formed in 1985 as a bit of fun, but the first gig instantly sold out, and they’ve been performing ever since.
  • Richie Williams, one of the original members of the orchestra, played at the Cavern Club with Thin Lizzy.
