130 Years of Ukulele
It was August the 23rd back in 1879 when the Ukulele was brought to Hawaii. In the night of August 22-23 we'll have a grand celebration of the 130th birthday of the ukulele at a beautiful old Art Deco theatre Orion in the heart of Helsinki.
Build Your Own Uke!!!
Luthier Tea Time
This is not a conventional uke-event taking place in one building, so you'll also get a chance to get to know some corners and streets of Helsinki! All locations are within few minutes walking distance from one another (in the heart of Helsinki).
