The Big Strum — ukulele community orchestra

4pm–4.30pm | Zoom & Facebook Live | Free

Revoluton Arts in partnership with The Mix Luton present … The Big Strum — for all ages

Join Phil and Adam for weekly workshops in ukulele so that you can play like a pro!

This week we will learn a Bob Dylan classic and use our newfound single-note-skills to add an interesting intro.

Where to get a ukulele

We're working with and through local community groups to supply ukuleles to those that might not be able to afford it so contact if you have a group that you would like to nominate.

If you don’t have a ukulele you can still order and have delivered one from Chamberlain Music.

Get tuned up

Before the workshop, check out this video: How to tune your ukulele

Dance Like a Pro with Bruce Carson

Street dance workshop led by Bruce Carson from street dance crew KNE — in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire — for 11+ years.

Keep fit and dance during lockdown with Bruce Carson, member of street dance crew KNE who were semi-finalists of Britain's Got Talent 2019! Bruce will teach you the dance styles and routes in breaking, street and contemporary.

This week we are dancing to the Toosie Slide by Drake. This is an easy routine that you'll be able to spice up with your own skills and it'll give you the chance to show off.

This event runs on Zoom which is a private virtual 'room' where you can all see each other and Bruce will be able to give you pointers on your technique — or you can choose to have your camera switched off if you prefer.
