A Cracking Bank Holiday Weekend!


We hope you’ve all had a lovely bank holiday weekend? We put ours to good use and had a great time which included playing some gorgeous gigs, here’s how our weekend went from start to end…..

Friday night the festivities began when we had my (Lucy) Birthday meal and pub piano sing along night. It all took place at the Kings Arms pub in Portesham where I run my Monday night ukulele group. After eating a delicious meal, I got myself settled down at the old Joanna and we had a right old sing song! It was lovely to see so many friends, fellow ukers and pub goers having a blast belting out some favourite songs old and new. Looking forward to the next one!

Saturday was a super relaxed day, we enjoyed pottering about and having a bit of time off after a busy half term at work.

Sunday came with excitement as we were due to play at one of our favourite places – River Cottage. Situated deep in the beautiful Devon countryside in Axminster, they were hosting a new Food Fair and we were booked to play three sets throughout the afternoon. And what a lovely time we had! The rain held off for us and we had a great reception from visitors and staff alike. The afternoon flew by in a haze of music, food, beautiful views, happy faces, more food and good times.

Monday came along too soon but we weren’t sad as we had been booked to open the proceedings at Quayside Festival on the harbour side in Weymouth. Again we were fortunate that the rain held off for our set. We had a great crowd come along, so good to see so many familiar faces – friends, family, students and an excellent contingent of ‘Rockies’ from Stacey’s Rock Choirs (who had the best moves!)

Thank you to all of those that came along and supported us this weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves we hope you did too. We’re now looking forward to our first wedding of the summer and our first cruise port session of the season next week. We just hope the weather continues to be kind!

About tiltherewasuke

Take two music loving ladies. Brew a friendship for twelve years. Add a quirky instrument. Stir in an idea. Leave to stand for a couple of months. You should be left with a duo who call themselves 'Til There Was Uke. A Vocal/Ukulele duo featuring Lucy Broddle on Ukulele and Stacey Rae Hobday on Lead Vocals. With our blend of original arrangements, whistle solos, creatively inspired looks and attention to detail we hope to entertain our audience with a mixture of well know and long forgotten classic tunes that have been administered with the TTWUke treatment! That treatment takes many guises and ranges from an old school Greenday standard with a time signiature change twist to an Amy Winehouse number sprinkled with a latin feel.
