Wells Christmas Tide Event. 25th November 2023

This is one of our Annual events we are pleased to be involved in. The Wells Christmas Tide is a full day event attended by many people both young and old. We all enjoyed playing to the crowd during the 3 sessions through the day 

This email was received from one of the event organisers after the event.


May I once again thank you and the rest of the Fakenham Ukes for your performances at our Christmas Tide Festival.


We have had many complimentary messages of how they enjoyed the day, and this is down to your contribution in making it so.


Again many thanks and best wishes to you and all your members for Christmas and New year.


Very best regards to you all

We enjoyed our latest Summer gig at Sandringham Visitors Centre. A large crowd gathered to relax in the surroundings and savour the music. 

Below is an email received from a visitor who enjoyed our performance. It's great to know we also encourage others to take up the Uke too.

What an exceptional day this was. Lovely venue, lovely event, lovely crowd. We all enjoyed our day here, both playing and relaxing between sets.

We must also mention the wonderful Mike Fox, singer and saxophonist, who also starred at this event and helped make it a great day.

Thornage Hall Summer Fair. Sunday 3rd September 2023

We had never played at this venue before, but what a wonderful place this is. Thornage Hall is an independent charity providing supported living, learning and working for adults with learning disabilities. Its amazing what these people produce here. Its worth looking at their website.

TEA 4 2 Event at North Elmham 13th September 23

This Thursday we played at North Elmham. The afternoon  Tea 4 2 event is always well attended by the villagers, which is a tribute to the hard working team that organises this regular event. The afternoon tea is held in the Memorial hall and provided by the Church for the elderly folk from North Elmham. Everyone enjoyed delicious cakes and sandwiches followed by a sing-a-long afternoon of music provided by the fabulous Fakenham Ukes.

On Saturday the Fakenham Ukes played at the grand opening of Wighton new village hall.  We played the last gig in the old hall, about 18 months ago, and are thrilled to have been invited to play the first gig in the new venue.
