Welcome to ukeStroud
Formed in 2010, UkeStroud is a friendly club for ukulele players from Stroud and surrounding areas.
We meet on the 1st, and 3rd Thursdays of the month from 7:30 to 9:30 pm and have a well-deserved break for hot drinks and biscuits.
Where there is a 5th Thursday in the month, we have an afternoon meeting from 2-4 pm
The cost is £2.00.
Newcomers are very welcome if you want to find out more about playing this fun instrument. We don’t have the facility to teach absolute beginners at our Thursday meetings but can recommend local teachers.
Song Sheets: We have a varied repertoire of well-known popular songs, many with a folk influence. Songs can be downloaded from the website page and most players use a tablet to store their music.
Songs are projected on screen at meetings, so visitors can fully take part.
There is a Zoom session every Saturday from 10.00 am led by Norma and her husband, Mark. Most of the songs are taken from the UkeStroud website, but all the music is shown on screen.
Use our contact form to get in touch and find out the Zoom code.
UkeStroud is available to play for fundraising events, social groups and care homes. We encourage audience participation by providing copies of the words.
We charge only a modest fee.
