If you’ve ever wanted to play the ukulele this group is for you, whatever your skill level. Whether you are a complete beginner, or have a little experience, come and join us. You just need a ukulele and some enthusiasm, but if you don’t have a ukulele, we can lend you one for a trial and give advice on buying your own.

The cost for tuition with Tom, a very experienced music teacher, is £4 per person, per session, payable on the day, i.e. £24 if you attend every session in the current block of six.

We have vacancies in the group – please contact Brian for further information.
