Have fun tapping your feet with the world’s first ukulele orchestra
George Hinchcliffe’s Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain will take the stage at the Embassy Theater in a show sponsored by East Lincolnshire Arts.
It includes ukulele bassist John Forman and Grahame Baumber’s Skegness Ukulele Ensemble.
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has filled the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Sydney Opera House, Australia and various venues in the United States and Europe to play their joyous and rowdy music.
John Forman said that many people think the ukulele is a toy instrument – until they hear this orchestra playing.
“Lincolnshire’s many ukulele band members rushed to book for this show – to experience this first Lincolnshire appearance of this amazing orchestra,” said John.
“Many of the ukulele players in attendance will be bringing their instruments with them as there will be a Born this Way ‘play along’ number by Lady Gaga, which is included in the show.”
Audiences are invited to tap their toes with the royalty of the ukulele scene, the indie bonsai guitar rock stars who have plucked and sang, joked and whistled with Clean Bandit, Robbie Williams, Madness, Cat Stevens, The Ministry of Sound and Blue stone.

Another date for your diary is a Christmas demonstration by Skegness Flower Lovers Club.
The demonstrator is Vanessa Wellock, a floral designer specializing in wedding flowers for 25 years.
Vanessa is a NAFAS (National Association of Flowers Arrangement Societies) qualified demonstrator in the Northeast region.
She is inspired by her love of the Yorkshire Dales and the Ilkley moor, where she lives nearby with her other half, two children and the Rhodesian Ridgeback Monty family.
When she’s not creating something wonderful, it’s a brisk walk on the moor.
The event will take place on Thursday, November 3 at 2:30 p.m.
Friday night is The Ultimate Boy Band Party Night and Saturday is Go Your Own Way The Fleetwood Mac Legacy.
Tickets can also be reserved online.
