Are you interested in learning to play a new musical instrument and joining a friendly social group?
Then you may want to join the Worksop U3A Ukulele group “Highly Strung.”
Currently the group has around 25 members so we enjoy a good deal of social interaction as well. You will be made most welcome.
So, if you are interested in learning a new skill/musical instrument, please get in contact with Ian Thow, our Group Co-ordinator, who will be delighted to give you more detailed information about the group.
The group meets every Wednesday afternoon from 2.00 – 5.00 pm in the Crown Place Community Centre, Trent Street, Worksop S80 1TS.
We have a tuition session for beginners/learners which runs from 2.00 – 2.30 every Wednesday followed by the main practice session from 2.30 – 4.30/5.00 with a short break in the middle for tea/coffee and biscuits (we even have an occasional piece of cake if any of the members supply it!).
The main practice session involves the learning and playing of a wide variety of songs and also preparation for a number of “gigs” we perform throughout the year. These gigs range from visiting local Care Homes to entertain the residents to playing at a number of other groups and venues in and around Worksop including the occasional outside performance. This gives us the opportunity not just to learn and play songs but also to contribute in some way to our involvement in the Worksop community.
This year we hope to run occasional sessions on a Wednesday to improve and develop our playing skills and abilities in a variety of ways.
