Workshop course

The Worcester Ukulele Club is holding a workshop for beginners

The workshop will take place at the University of Worcester’s St John’s Campus in the Cotswold Hall of the Elgar Building.

A club spokesperson said: “Come join us and learn to play the ukulele and have fun.

“You don’t need to own a ukulele, there will be instruments to borrow for the day.

“You don’t need to know anything about music when you arrive, but by the time you leave you should have learned some basic chords and a simple song or two.”

The workshop will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 29.

The members of the Worcester Ukulele Club have decided to organize a workshop for beginners to share their passion for the ukulele and the pleasure they have in playing it.

The workshop is for people over 18 and costs £5 to attend.

Music City’s Steve Ricketts will be at the shop, with ukuleles and accessories for sale.

The club started in 2010 with a handful of people taking a course at the Elgar School of Music. There are now about 100 active WUCCIES – as they now describe themselves.

Many perform at concerts, raising money for the club’s chosen charity, which this year is Pancreatic Cancer UK.

Over the years, the club has met in different locations as membership grew.

The club now meets at the University of Worcester, in the Worcester Room (Conference Centre), St John’s Campus, on Monday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and regularly attracts around 60 players.
