ŽELIV MONASTERY - 2018
2.5.2018 - 6.5.2018
THE UKULELE INSTITUTE OF THE CZECH REPUBLIC
A Ukulele retreat with Ukulollo & Ukulele Uff
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 tutors are Lorenzo Vignando "Ukulollo" and Chris Hough "Ukulele Uff". During the course of the Czech Ukulele Festivals I have watched both of these hold workshops, and I am convinced that the combination of the two personalities and styles will offer an illuminating and entertaining ukulele experience.
The program will be in English.
