A friendly, fun ukulele group based in Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire, we welcome players of all abilities, whether you're an experienced player or a complete newbie wanting to learn.

Tuesdays 12.00pm - C3A,
Merrial Street ST5 2AG

Did you

  • the ukulele has only 4 strings

  • you don't need to be able to read music to play (many of the Ukulymies don't read music so you're in good company)

  • when you've learned just 2 chords you can play dozens of tunes; 3 chords and you're rocking out to HUNDREDS of 'em!

  • the ukulele is fun for all ages - we know of players as young as 5 and some in their ninth decade

  • you can buy a brand new ukulele for as little as £30 (just don't blame us when you get hooked and buy your second, third... )

  • you're welcome to come along and sit in on one of our practice sessions to see if the uke is for you

  • and the best fact of all... you can't play the ukulele without smiling!
