The world renowned all-singing, all-plucking superstars come to Bury with their toe-tapping music, hilarious banter, and sheer superlative entertainment. Last year The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain celebrated 30 Plucking Years of ukulele action and this year they will have been active for One Billion Seconds. See and hear for yourself why the appeal of the Ukes of GB (the original Ukulele Orchestra, the oldest and the best) and their hilarious, entertaining, witty shopping trolley dash through all genres of music has led to sold out shows all over the world from the Royal Albert Hall to Sydney Opera House.

'Pure entertainment', 'Magisterial', 'The best musical entertainment in the country', 'A much loved National Institution', are some of the things audience members and reviewers have said in attempting to encapsulate the indefinable magic and atmosphere of all round good humour, light heartedness, well being and joy which permeate the live concerts.

Cornwall-based folk band The Changing Room brings you original, award-winning songs in English and Cornish language from their debut album and forthcoming releases. Formed in 2014 by Tanya Brittain and Sam Kelly, R2 Magazine said at the time 'It feels like a little musical magic happened'.

WOR - 2000

The Changing Room - 2050

Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain - 2145

Approximate finish - 2310
