We find there is still a good following of people who like to listen to electronic organ and keyboard music but not so many taking up playing. So our format has had to change with the times ...'

‘As an open group, we welcome anyone to join - from complete beginner to experienced player. We don't “teach” ukulele, but you will find that playing regularly with a group will bring your playing on much quicker than you expect ... If you are looking for a musical group to play at your fete, garden party or village hall, please get in touch - we do “play out”. For some reason, beer festivals seem a particular favourite amoung our members! In general we only do so fairly locally to North Beds, but may go further afield if the gig appeals to the members - just ask. If we can’t help. we may be able to recommend another ukulele group.’
