The all-singing, all strumming players of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain make their Proms debut with a specially-devised programme including a rendition of the Last Night favourite, Jerusalem, by Parry, plus Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries and the March from The Dambusters. During Ode to Joy from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, they invite ukulele playing members of the audience at the Royal Albert Hall and at home to join in.
