...Art on a Ukulele have been working alongside the artist Mick Rooney RA, the UK’s foremost independent ukulele maker Pete Howlett and The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.

Long & Ryle are delighted to be providing the venue for this extraordinary event. 30 ukuleles were painted by luminary artists such as Bill Jacklin RA, Allen Jones RA, Cathie Pilkington RA,PJ Crook, Norman Ackroyd CBE RA and many more. We will also be showing ukuleles decorated by our artists Anne Desmet RA, Ramiro Fernandez Saus.

The ukuleles will be played by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at a performance at The Jazz Café on September 12 and ultimately auctioned to raise money for The Hepatitis C Trust.
