Children’s Ukulele Festival
Thursday 2 February 2017
ILOVEUKE has teamed up with The Garage to offer Norfolk’s first Children’s Ukulele Festival, an event for primary school students in years 1 to 3 who are learning to play the uke.
This fun-filled day will take place at The Garage in Norwich on Thursday 2 February 2017 (World Play Your Ukulele Day) from 10am to 2pm.
Activities will include music-making workshops, performances from students, a large group strum-along and a participatory performance from The Ukulele Banana Band in the theatre. There will even be a 45-minute ‘crash-course’ in playing the ukulele for teachers and support staff.
The aim of the festival is to inspire, motivate and celebrate the achievements of children who attend Uke Clubs or are learning ukulele in school.
For some schools, where desirable, there will be an opportunity to gain Arts Award Discover.
The event is funded by The National Foundation for Youth Music and will be free to attend. Schools will be asked to provide their own transport, and children will need a packed lunch.
Places are limited to 90 children. We expect it to be popular, so places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
If you would like your ukulele students to take part please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your places. Numbers can be finalised at the beginning of January.
