George Hinchliffe’s Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has become a global sensation and nothing short of a UK national treasure. ‘Heresy II Heritage’, their new tour, charts the Uke’s rise from curiosity to virtuosity, from village hall to the Royal Albert Hall. The Ukes of GB have performed for the British Royal Family, the BBC Proms, Sydney Opera House and Carnegie Hall, but heretics they remain, poking fun at the cultural elite, defying you to believe their own hype, bemused by all the hot air.

On an ongoing “hand-luggage only” world tour, the Ukes provide pure entertainment, dead-pan British humour and irresistible foot-tapping music. They are masters of the unexpected, whether re-imagining folk songs, twisting classical music favourites, uncovering quirky versions of rock covers, or playing the performers’ own all-original compositions.

Iconoclastic. Unabashed genre crashing antics. Nothing is spoof proof.
Most people have to die before they become immortal. These ukulele superstars have no such worries.
