Sunny Side Up EVENTS
Please come along to one - or all! - of the events Sunny Side Up is organising for 2018 and support our work. And keep an eye on our website as we may organise additional events, tea parties, etc., which haven't yet entered our minds!
Here are some pictures (and on the Welcome page) showing our ukulele group, The Sunnysiders, performing at our Coffee Morning in March 2016 at Stratford's beautiful Town Hall. Well worth a visit.
Pictures on Sunny Side Up's Activity Groups and Volunteer pages show the ukulele group and some of its individual members in all their colourful glory, by the way!
This year's Coffee Morning was held on Tuesday 27th March 2018 again at Stratford Town Hall. Many visitors turned up to join in the fun and sample our delicious cakes - and sang along with The Sunnysiders. If you couldn't make it, there'll be another one next year!
Standing room only!
Many thanks to Bob Reynolds for
these pictures of our Coffee Morning
4th ANNUAL TOWN HALL
Sunny Side Up's third annual tea party on 8th October 2017 was a great success. Beautiful table settings, delicious food, excellent entertainment and the gaiety and style of another era. See the testimonials below from guests and our picture slide show of our first tea party.
Next annual tea party will be held on Sunday 7th October 2018 as part of the Engage 50+ Festival. Save the date!

For fans of The Sunnysiders
On Tuesday 28th February 2017 we entertained patients at the Nicol Unit at Stratford Hospital. Lots of cheerful 'sing-along' music in our repertoire so all the patients were able to join in and, well, sing along!
On Thursday 16th March, we performed at Sunny Side Up's Coffee Morning at Stratford Town Hall. There was a spirited singalong as always and our Terribly Tempting Tombola!
On Saturday 3rd June we took part in the first Stratford Folk Festival held at the Arts House where we were both playing (great fun!) and running a ukulele workshop. Three participants in the workshop who'd learnt to play Jambalaya in one-hour flat joined us on stage in the Foyer and played along with us. You could too! Contact us for details.
On Friday 16th June, The Sunnysiders played at Scholars Mews retirement and care home Open Day. Since it will be partly in the open we're praying for a dry day!
On Sunday 8th October we were at the Sunny Side Up third annual Afternoon Tea Party at Stratford Town Hall. See details on left.
On Thursday 30th November The Sunnysiders entertained guests at The Afternoon Townswomens' Guild surprise party at Stratford Town Hall. Christmas music and carols were 'on the menu' of course - and a nod towards the season in our head gear!
Details of the remainder of
2018 programme will be posted soon.
The group has expanded in size since above picture was taken but there's always room for more! Why not join us? No need to read music. Warm and welcoming group. More details on Activity Groups page or contact us via email or phone.
We've put together a few pictures of Sunny Side Up's First Annual Tea Party held at Stratford-upon-Avon Town Hall in October 2015.
