HAVE you ever wanted to play the ukulele? If so, this is the ideal workshop for you – and no musical knowledge or experience is necessary.

Worcester Ukulele Club is delighted to offer a Beginners’ Workshop at Worcester University, St John’s Campus, in the Hines Building on Sunday, April 14, from 10.30am to 12.30pm.

A spokesman said: “Come and join us and learn to play the ukulele and have some fun. If you have been given a ukulele, but have no idea of how to make music with it, then this course is just for you.

“You don’t need to own a ukulele, there will be instruments to borrow for the morning. You don’t need to know anything about music when you arrive, but by the time you leave you should have learned a few basic chords and a simple song or two.”

Members of Worcester Ukulele Club decided to hold a Beginners’ Workshop to share their passion for the ukulele and the fun they have playing it.

The workshop – which is for over 18’s only – costs £5. For details, or to book, contact: workshop@emaildodo.com.

Worcester Ukulele Club members are a friendly bunch. The club began back in 2010 with a handful of people on a course at Elgar School of Music. There are now about 100 active WUCCIES - as they are now known. Many perform at gigs, raising money for the club’s chosen charity, which this year is Spectrum Days - a charity based in Droitwich which supports young adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities. Last year the club raised £18,315 for Acorns Children’s Hospice.

Over the years the club has met at different venues as membership has grown. It now meets at Worcester University, in the Worcester Room, St John’s Campus, Monday evening from 7.30pm to 9.30pm and regularly attracts some 60 players.
