Fourth Sussex Ukulele Festival

We are pleased to announce that this year’s festival will take place at The Ropetackle Arts Centre, Shoreham-by-Sea, BN43 5EG.

The festival will take place on Sunday 11th September 2016 commencing around midday.

There will be even more room this year as we shall have the use of the main auditorium as well as the foyer and workshop rooms.

On the Saturday night prior to the festival we shall be having our usual warm up event at The Railway Inn, Boundary Road, Portslade. This will be as interactive as possible with a jam and also special guests “The Bandana Collective” who will be playing songs from their new album “Defending”.
