I think there is something about the ukulele that works brilliantly with a fundraiser - its such a happy instrument and it also intrigues people. I was therefore delighted to be contacted by the Berkhamsted Ukulele Random Players club (BURP!) in the UK to let me know about their charity bash.
On Saturday 3 March 2012, BURP are hosing the Ukes For Unicef event at the Berkhamsted Civic Centre. Ukes For Unicef is a uke festival in aid of this very very worthwhile charity and will feature performances, workshops, open-mic sessions and jamming. Entry is by donation to Unicef, and they are proud to have some headline performers including the brilliant Ken Middleton, Krabbers Keef and Hamish Currie. After the acts there will be an evening "thrash" at the Three Horseshoes pub where the BURP gang hold their club sessions every third Thursday in each month.
Alongside the music there will also be stalls to buy uke merchandise and a raffle.
It runs from 11.30 to 17.30, and you can find more details on the official page HERE. If you can't make it but want to show your support, they have a Just Giving page too!
Best of luck guys - hope it goes well!
