Enhancing the Halo presents The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra in a celebratory, mid-winter fundraiser show at the Wellington Town Hall.

Wellington’s beloved ukulele vagabonds are hammering the 'international' into Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra with a month-long debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. They have been given a prized slot at the prestigious Gilded Balloon Debating Hall, and this special Wellington Town Hall show marks the beginning of what will surely be an auspicious adventure.

It’s no small feat to get a dozen Wellingtonians to Scotland (and back!) hence the fundraising focus, but the night will also be a celebration of Wellington’s native bird population, Scotland’s national animal - the unicorn! – and the Wellington Town Hall itself, which is closing for earthquake strengthening.

There’ll be some kind of raffle, at least one very interesting story about the town hall, an impression of unicorns, Alexander Graham Bell and other Scottish ghosts, and of course the usual heavenly harmonies, scorching uke solos and madcap banter from the local music-comedy heroes.

Residents of Scottish-sounding suburbs Kelburn, Kilbirnie and Seatoun are especially welcome as honoured guests, and there will be spot prizes for the best kilt and sporran, as well as the most excitingly dressed person in general – because everyone needs an excuse to dress up when it’s cold outside.

Ukulele players are encouraged to bring their instruments for a mass Proclaimers singalong! (All the chords you need are C, G and F.)
