Saturday 29 July from noon Market Place, Fakenham
Play the ukulele? Come and strum with us as we fill the Market Place with as many players as we can muster. We’ll be joined by two practised local ukulele groups – and we welcome anyone who possesses a uke and knows how to use it, however badly!
Songs which will be played (or attempted..) are below.
Can’t play? Come along anyway, bring the kids – and the dogs.
As well as the event in the market place we expect to split into smaller groups and tour some of the local Fakenham pubs where we have been invited to play. Details will follow and be available on the day.

You may notice a lot of Harley Davison motorbikes in the market place. These will be moving on before we start and will add to the occasion.
