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

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.

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.
