The third Uke East ukulele festival in Norwich has proved a huge success bringing artists from around the country to the city.

The festival saw an open mic at the Coachmakers in St Stephens Road on the Friday night with a host of great acts on the Saturday at the Norwich Arts Centre and a range of workshops and stalls.

The event included a performance from the brilliant Opera-lele (a duo from London and Kent mixing opera with ukuleles with often hilarious results), the hugely popular East Anglian barn-storming band The Bijoux Toots, Wigan wonders Chonkinfeckle and the sensational uke soloist and occasional member of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain Ben Rouse from Portsmouth.
