Tickhill Ukulele Group
Tickhill Ukulele Group meets on Monday evenings from 7pm to 8pm at the Parish Rooms, Tickhill, Doncaster, DN11 9HZ. The group has grown rapidly since we started in November 2014 and we now regularly have well over 30 people attending.
It's open to all ages and abilities, including complete beginners. We're a friendly group and there's always someone willing to show you the ropes. The aim is to get everyone playing and singing a wide variety of songs. I'll provide the tabs and words and all the resources we use are available to download. There's always a pot of tea too....
Don't worry if you don't have your own ukulele. You can borrow one of ours to start with. I'm very happy to give advice on buying your own instrument as well as tuning and maintaining it.
The cost of each session is £3 for adults and £2 for children. (Children must be accompanied by an adult.)
Recently we've been learning 'Life On Mars' (David Bowie), 'Perfect' (Ed Sheeran), 'Loosing My Religion' (R.E.M), 'Sweet Caroline' (Neil Diamond) and a number of other songs, old and new. If there are songs you'd particularly like to learn, I'm always open to suggestions. We have performed at a number of events in Tickhill, most recently at the Tour de Yorkshire, the Tickhill Gala and at St. Mary's Church as part of T-Fest.
We are currently learning songs from the 1940s to play at Tickhill 40s Day on Saturday 9th June. More details to follow.
We will also be playing at the Tickhill Gala on Saturday 7th July 2018.
BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY: Please note that there will be no Ukulele Group on Monday 7th May 2018. We'll be back on Monday 14th May.
The Ukulele Group has it's own Facebook page where you can find out what new song we'll be learning each week and keep in touch with the group. Visit the Tickhill Ukulele Group Facebook Page.
