Saturday 3rd March, 12:45pm - Thornbury Theatre Velvet Room
Miss Wattle and the Panton Hill Ukulele Club, also known as Miss Wattle’s Group Ukulele Class, hail from the bushy outer north east of Melbourne, and meet every Tuesday evening at 7 at Allwood Neighbourhood House, Hurstbridge. The inimitable Miss Wattle (aka Sue Arnold) is a colourful local character known for her yearly conquest of the Hurstbridge Wattle Day Beauty pageant (ever since 1910!)
Sue has a long history of ukulele love and has toured the world playing at Vancouver Comedy Festival, Glastonbury Festival, France, Holland, the U.K... you name it, she’s played there. She leads the Panton Hill Ukulele Club enthusiastically on their musical journey, using her many years of experience to impart quintessential ukulele-ness to many loved pop, rock, western swing, calypso and Hawaiian tunes.
