West Bridgford

Ukulele strumming for fun

The group currently meets every Thursday afternoon 2-4pm via Zoom.

Following our previous pattern where we met on the 2nd and 3rd Thursday of each month at West Bridgford Baptist church and played/sang we now do this via Zoom playing and singing some 12+ songs. On the other weeks we meet at the same time via Zoom but play/sing some 4/5 songs interspersed with a discussion. The topics have been wide ranging and have recently included, new walks we have discovered, favourite books, which famous person/s you would like to invite to dinner, the first thing I would like to do when lockdown finishes, etc. Our songs are very varied from throughout the last century and are increasing as members suggest new ones. We are a member led group with members choosing the programmes. The group is friendly and as our title suggests we believe in having fun with our playing.

We have our own website where all our programmes are, as well as all the songs with chords and words, plus lots of other useful information. Follow the link on the right.

We welcome new members and although technically full, as we could not fit more than 50 into the room where we met, now with Zoom we can accommodate more so if you would like to join us contact David via the Blue Bird.

If you have not played a ukulele yet but would like to try we do have spare ukuleles you can borrow plus guidance on how to play. In normal times a member takes new people to one side for part of the session to help them become familiar but that is not possible currently. We can arrange for an individual Zoom session to help get you started.
