Andy Eastwood

Andy’s act is an upbeat blend of dazzling instrumental artistry, foot-tapping songs of yesteryear and his own brand of bright and breezy humour. Expect everything from George Formby to the Beatles, Rossini to Frank Sinatra.

Andy made history at Oxford University as the only student ever to give his degree recital on the instrument, and is now considered one of the world’s foremost ukulele players, touring the length of the country and abroad with nostalgic wartime variety shows and even pantomime.

The late great Ken Dodd gave Andy his break into theatre, and he made over 300 performances with the legendary comedian, as well as working alongside stars such as Max Bygraves, Joe Pasquale, Frank Skinner (appearing in the George Formby documentary), Des O’Connor and Roy Hudd.

Recently Andy has been portraying uke legend George Formby in the touring show We’ll Meet Again, and his festival appearances have taken him to Italy, Germany, The Czech Republic, Finland and Oklahoma City, USA.

The Bar will be open at the Village Hall for refreshments; all bar takings will go towards the work of this wonderful local facility.

Ticket price: £15.25
