Commemorating the centenary of The Great War ‘When This Lousy War is Over’ is a funny, musically rewarding, touching, irreverent and thought provoking concert for all ages, giving us a window on the world in 1914-18 through the popular music of the time. This inspirational show carries the Ukulele Orchestra’s trademark humour, originality and passion through stomping marches, early jazz, poignant ballads, catchy melodies and even a touch of Hawaiian music. It reveals that 'the instrument of the people', the ukulele, has a place in making this music live again as we remember both comradeship and sorrow. The musical pieces will be framed by a narrative, with stories taken from original war diaries and memoirs written by relatives of the Orchestra. This is a personal show and although the war took place a century ago its reverberations and consequences are still with us all.
