Main Group

The main Ukulele group meets once a fortnight on a Thursday between 7.30 and 9pm in the Enterprise Centre in Raunds.
Each session costs £1 to cover hire costs of the room.

When we meet, we play through pieces of music chosen or suggested by members and learn to play them as a group, help is given with the pieces where necessary. The group is currently about 20 people in size and ranges from people who have been playing for a while to those who have just completed the most recent course. It would be useful to have some experience in playing the Uke before you join this group. If you would like to learn, please click on the Uke Courses tab above.
