Play along 10pm tonight with the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain at the Proms.
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 plus songs from The Who and The Sex Pistols.
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.
Listeners can prepare for this by playing along with the tutorials at bbc.co.uk/proms.
