About us

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.

9th June Jam at 7.30pm

Tonight we'll be practising for "Paddle Round The Pier", so please bring along the "Wukulele & Uke at the Duke Paddle Songbook 2015" book as well as book 11. Here's a message from Lawrie:

For those of you who have not been before, "Paddle Round The Pier" run a ukulele stage as part of a festival on Hove Lawns, you can find out more at www.paddleroundthepier.com.

We team up with our sister jam Wukulele and play a few songs from the stage, the format is exactly the same as our monthly meetings so please don't be intimidated by the rather grand festival title. All are welcome. We are playing at 11.00 on Saturday 4th July so please try and get there by 10.45. I thought we all might like to wear a hat of some description. If you have any questions please see Lawrie or Pete at the meeting.

Plans for our festival are moving along well and I hope to have more information soon.

See you on the 9th.

Lawrie and Sally
