Ukulele Extravaganza raising funds and awareness for St Peter & St James Hospice

For July we welcome Lewkulele to our Sunday In The Bar session

LEWKULELE has been meeting weekly since 2013 when a few brave friends, with no previous experience of, or interest in, playing a musical instrument, were persuaded that they should take up the ukulele, and unwittingly started changing the cultural landscape of Lewes.

Where once evenings around this genteel Sussex town had resonated with the sound of orchestral, chamber and choral ensembles, there began to be heard the uncoordinated strumming of ukuleles – and much uncontrollable laughter.

But, amazingly, from those humble, stumbling beginnings has emerged LEWKULELE, a weekly session where up to 30 strummers meet to play, sing, laugh and drink - not necessarily in that order and certainly not simultaneously.

This is a rare gig and will be the first at the Con Club and promises to be an intresting and fun afternoon.

The gig is raising funds and awareness for St Peter & St James Hospice, we are very lucky to have such a wonderful facility on our doorstep. The hospice need to raise over £7,000 a day to keep the facility open to all adults and their families. So please come along and support us! St Peter & St James Hospice is a fantastic facility and only gets 14% funding from the government the rest is fundraised from the community so every penny counts
