! Ukulele Clubs KEY

‘Our members are at all levels and we even have one or two experts. You can come for some or all of the session but it can be overwhelming for absolute beginners/learners. Therefore we’ve introduced lessons and separate sessions for them at our home ... We also play local fetes and festivals, private parties and we organise several charity gigs each year.’

Formed 2014: ‘Our aim is to provide a monthly event where ukulele enthusiasts can meet, play, sing, chat and generally have a good time. We do not have any ideas of grandeur - whatever your playing ability you are welcome to join us - and with 50 or more players, the occasional (?) duff chord is in good company! ... We do have “open mic” spots when some players perform solos or perhaps duets. Where possible we try to support local charities by attending fund raising events etc. But above all, PUPS is about ukulele players having fun’.

‘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!

If we can’t help. we may be able to recommend another ukulele group.’
