About us

Duke of Wellington photo

Uke at the Duke started in January 2011 in response to a request to run an evening jam. The Worthing jam known as Wukulele was our model and we remain close to our sister jam which is a Sunday lunchtime event. Many ukulele players attend both jams.

Uke at the Duke has its own songbooks and invites players to submit their favourites for inclusion, songs range from traditional to punk classics, there are even a few originals.

The jam meets at “The Duke of Wellington”, Brighton Road, Shoreham, BN43 6RE on the second Tuesday of each month 7.30pm till 9.30pm.

Occasional away fixtures are played in local pubs and festivals and many groups have formed out of the jam.

All abilities are welcome. Just come along, or if you want more information email ukeattheduke@outlook.com

Jams are led by many players and are an independent non-profit collective. There is no charge for attending our jams and no formalities, just turn up and play with us.

10th March Jam at 7.30pm

This month's books will be 4, 5 and 6 as we continue to visit old hits and songs we haven't played recently.

Last month there was concern raised about the inability to hear at the far end of the pub near the Bar Billiard table where a growing band of ukers are seated. In order to address this we are going to try setting up the P.A. and mike by the fireplace. This will involve putting the speakers up on stands which although better for the sound may have consequences for movement along the bar. Anyway let's try it and see how we go. This will mean there will be extra seating by the piano and to the front of the stage.

There's a new updated index to all our songs available to download using this link.

Look forward to seeing you on the 10th
