June Events

28 06 2016

Now the winter months are here, Townsville Ukuleles ramp up their performances at the many events showcased in our town at this time of the year. Some of us joined “The Ukestra” at the Palm Creek Festival.  Mark Jackson and Jane Gelbart, the driving forces from the Ukestra, conducted an impromptu workshop at  the West End Hotel at the tail end of the festival. Looking forward to a return visit next year Mark and Jane.

Celebrating 150 Years of Townsville, we joined the Waitangi Community float in the Pacific Festival Parade. Irene led us in her Kiwi favourites and her group wowed the dignitaries with the Maori Haka

Another group of players headed to Magnetic Island to perform at the Maggie Island Community Care lunch. This is a very popular gig on our performance calendar and everyone who sailed had a wonderful time.

And now full scale practice is on for the Cairns Ukulele Festival…See You There!
