What is Ukulele Wednesdays?
It’s a free weekly ukulele jam, which happens in two locations in London and welcomes all levels, from beginners to advanced. It doesn’t matter if you only know a C chord, everyone can join in! A fun strumalong to liven up your humpday! Bring your ukulele and a songbook. Download the pdf to your tablet/laptop/phone or print it out.

New songbook email only: Join the other mailing list.
How do I join in?
Turn up with your ukulele and songbook, and be ready to say hello and play with the friendly and wonderful people at either of the two venues (or both!). If you want a bit more online activity, head over to twitter and facebook (see below for details). See you for a strum?
At what time does it start/end?
We usually start strumming at around 7.30pm-8pm but people arrive from 7pm for a drink and a chat. The last strum is usually around 10-30-11pm.
Where is it?
We’ve moved about a bit recently with the pandemic and are now playing at the Battersea Barge every second week (see Facebook, twitter or Instagram for dates). We are also now returning to our home at The Royal George (V. exciting!) – likely to be on alternate weeks but we’re still sorting out the fine print. First date 19th October is confirmed though! (again watch our social media accounts for the most up to date information). Join in at the one most local to you or even come to both!
The Battersea Barge
Has a projector screen so you can see the chords projected. People take the mic to lead. Best to bring a device with the songbook on, just in case you can’t see the screen. Usually, a bassist and a cajon player will be playing with the ukuleles to keep time.
Address: The Battersea Barge, Nine Elms Lane, Nine ELms,, London, SW11 8PZ. (www.batterseabarge.com)
Nearest Tubes: Battersea Power Station, Nine Elms, Vauxhall
The Royal George
This was the first Wednesdays. The pub closed down post pandemic and is now re-opening. We hope to back there in the next few weeks. Shout the song you want everyone to join you with, so everyone can find it in the book. When they have, count in so that they can join you.
