Can you play the Ukulele?

by Derek Johnson

A Ukulele band formed by a group of music fans in a pub two years ago now has a new home. The Tunbridge Wells Ukulele Night Thing, known as TWUNTS by their friends - took to the road after the pub where they held their regular meetings was shut down.

The band has grown from strength to strength, and has even performed before a crowd of more than 5,000 people in Basingstoke. Derek Johnson reports on their journey so far.

We spoke to founder member Dave Kinder and other bandmates.
