Sussex Ukulele Festival

Sunday 15th September 2019 - Starts 11.30am


The Summer of 1969

If you like fun days out and uplifting music, you are going to love this! Back by popular demand, Ropetackle’s very own Sussex Ukulele Festival combines top performers, workshops and guest-led jams in celebration of this small but powerful traditional instrument.

Cast your minds back to Woodstock, the moon landing, flower power, love, peace and Abbey Road and dress to impress in your best 1960s gear. This year’s festival features The Mersey Belles and Beaux, The Hedge Inspectors, Matthew Quilliam, Penny and the Howletts and Tania Pieri. There will be jams from the HOT (Hastings Old Town) Ukulele Group, Ems Valley Strummers and our very own Quayside Ukes.

There will be plenty of workshops with comprehensive and diverse learning techniques to suit absolute beginners and those with more experience (from £5 each), a raffle with a beautifully-crafted uke as top prize, kindly donated by Noah Ukes, and the chance to buy a top-quality uke of your own from Matt’s stall in the foyer.

More event details will be added to the Ropetackle website as they are confirmed.*


*The festival’s official opening night is on Saturday 14th September on the groovy and cool Houseboat Verda.
