Out and About with the Harrogate Spa Town Ukes
Ukes out on the Town
Whether it's carols at Christmas Markets, spreading a little joy to the elderly at a number of local care homes, appearing at local Galas and Summer Fairs or staging concerts at RHS Garden Harlow Carr, Harrogate's Valley Gardens and Knaresborough Castle, above all the Harrogate Spa Town Ukes love to perform.

Ukes Helping Others
