At home with The Lucky Leles

A ukulele retreat with Andreas, Torsten and Silke.

Now, in this very strange year of 2020, we are going to have the greates and widest ukulele retreat of all time at Želiv. The Lucky Leles will be teaching us their skills, from the 7th to the 11th of October in the wonderful surroundings of the Želiv monastery.

At Home with the Lucky Leles

The detailed program will be announced once finalised and you can ask them in person at the Czech festival.

The structure will be the same as previously, Wednesday arrivals and introduction, 3 full days of tuition, play and late night jams finishing with our traditional concert at the local theatre in Želiv on Saturday 11th.

If you want to dress up for the concert or do something special, bring the ideas and any stage items with you.

This retreat will take place in the monastery at Želiv which is about a 1 hour drive from Prague. The venue is perfect for such an event with everything we need on site.

The monastery is an interesting mixture of the original Baroque ecclesiastic buildings with some delightful seccesion elements dating from the beginning of the 20th century, the complex offers accommodation, practice rooms (one with piano), a brewery with restaurant, a pub, and a pleasant garden.

Želiv is a small village placed on an isthmus where the Želivka and Trnava rivers meet. Surrounded by hills and cliffs, there are also great opportunities for walks, indeed, if the weather is good, we will incorporate a ukulele picnic in to the program. As well as the monastery, Želiv also offers a small supermarket, a pub which has good solid Czech lunches, and the Hotel Kocanda (10 minutes walk from the Monastery) which has great food and drink, also a hall for events.

The program will be in English.
