We are proud to present our new DVD 'Prom Night, Live at the Royal Albert Hall BBC Proms 2009'.The DVD will be available for dispatch from the 3 December 2009 and will make the perfect Christmas present for those who were there and those who wished they were!

This DVD is a complete record of the Ukulele Orchestra's Proms debut, with footage of the full concert. Extras include interviews and atmospheric scenes of impromptu music-making from ukulele-playing audience members, 5.1 Surround Sound and Ukulele sheet music for the participation piece 'Ode to Joy'.
