Ukuleles are making a lot of noise in Rye


Musicians from the The Rye Ukulele Experiment made their radio debut last Friday when Radio Sussex broadcasted from the town.

As part of their Coast and Country roving report, Simon Jenkins, BBC Sussex Reporter was stationed up at the Ypres tower to present part of the show and to introduce listeners to just some of the interesting aspects of Rye.

The Rye Ukulele Experiment were invited along for a brief chat and to play out the show with one of their favourite songs. Lorna Hall, from the group, said: “We were flattered to be asked and thoroughly enjoyed our radio debut. The weather was amazingly warm so early in the morning. I hope we didn’t wake too many residents up.”

The Rye Ukulele Experiment meets every Tuesday at 7.30pm at The Queens Head, Landgate, Rye and welcomes all levels of competence. See
