Man with ukulele facing the reader
A young man dressed in an old-school dark zoot suit with a white shirt and bright, paisley tie holds a banjo ukulele with one hand while the other gestures to the audience with a big grin.
A woman in a dark dress, black lace gloves and scarf, and shining gold wig removes her sunglasses as she stares in shock, her mouth open.

The Ukulele Man

'A hugely enjoyable, brilliantly executed cabaret experience.' - CityNews

The untold story of Northern English wartime entertainer and ukulele legend George Formby! With a toothy grin and a cheeky turnip face, he sang naughty songs and won the heart of the nation! He was banned by the BBC, declared insane by his wife, and still became the UK's highest paid entertainer! And all "with his little ukulele in his hand".
