Ukulele Orchestra of Spalding hit right note, despite the rain
Rain failed to dampen the spirits of concert-goers at Ayscoughfee Gardens in Spalding.
Organisers of the event by the Ukulele Orchestra of Spalding expressed their gratitude and admiration to all who attended the free concert.
The weather forecast wasn't the best and, as soon as the opening chord was struck, the heavens opened.
Throughout the next two hours the orchestra was buoyed by the enthusiasm and support from the crowd, by their willingness to join in with the songs and by their applause.
Undaunted by the British weather, the waterproofs went on and the brollies went up, but the fans did not go away.
As the encore was played in the drizzle, the orchestra members were humbled by the generosity of the audience, who could have dashed off home to dry out, but instead took the time to put donations into the open ukulele case. All such donations are shared amongst local charities as the year progresses.
John Baguley, press office for the Ukulele Orchestra of Spalding, said: "Thanks again Spalding for being there for the Ukulele Orchestra of Spalding. We will try to arrange some better weather when we return to play again at Ayscoughfee Gardens on Bank Holiday Sunday August 25."
