The Ukulele Group is now FULL (to bursting)! If you would like advice on starting a second Ukulele group, do please contact the Group Coordinator.
We meet weekly at 1330 on Tuesdays at the Inn on the Green, Bank Farm Road SY3 6DU. There is a charge of £1 per session which includes a cup of tea or coffee.
We strum and sing for three hours: a first hour of nice easy tunes to suit beginners; a second in which we play slightly more demanding material; and a third hour for people with some experience who want to stretch their playing ability. Members come for one, two or all three hours as they wish. We have built up a wide-ranging repertoire of songs old and new(ish). We try to perform each one better every time - and we have a lot of FUN.
The ukulele is designed to be as easy as possible to play - absolute beginners can master their first two chords and be strumming along with the rest of us in twenty minutes. We were all beginners not so long ago.
No ability to read music is needed; it does help if you know (or, with a little prompting, can remember) the tunes of popular songs of the 20th century. You bring the ukulele, we provide the song sheets. Lots of song sheets!

We've added bass, percussion and quite a few more strummers since then!
