Canterbury Folk Festival

A Family Festival of Music

On-stage With The Secret Lives of Ukulele Big Band

This year The Secret Lives of Ukulele will lead an all-inclusive workshop that takes you from learning a simple song together, into devising and arranging creative ideas and then culminates in performing as part of a super group collective  –  all in two short days!

Join us in the creative process of bringing music to life.

Contribute at whatever level suits you – simple strumming or crafty picking.

Learn in small groups – combine in one big mass extravaganza!
