Berkhamsted Ukulele Random Players (BURP!) will be hosting its 10th 'Ukes for UNICEF' annual ukulele festival next weekend.

Over the past 9 years they have welcomed ukulele players from all over the UK and sometimes beyond, for a full day of strumming and singing.

Last year’s festival raised over £3,000 and BURP has now donated over £33,000 to UNICEF to support their work promoting the rights and wellbeing of disadvantaged children across the world.

On Saturday, February 27, from 11am till 6pm, will host the festival online via Zoom, for the past nine years the festival has been held at Berkhamsted Civic Centre, but due to the pandemic restrictions that is not possible this year.

There will be two live streams providing workshops, open-mic sessions, strumalongs and concerts by talented performers from both the local area and further afield.

There will also be a dedicated video channel showing the creative videos which have been produced remotely by individuals and groups over the past year since they have been unable to get together to play.
