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.

11th August Jam at 7.30pm

We will be using books 6, 7 and 8. Songs which we have played before so it should be fun.

A few other things to mention. In October we will have our usual jam on Tuesday 13th and then an extra one the next day Wednesday 14th where we will team up with "Hope and Social", a band anyone can join. Here is a clip so you get the idea.

More info nearer the time but it should be fun.

The ukulele festival raffle will start at the August jam and continue up to and across the festival events. It's a fantastic concert size Noah uke which can be seen at our jams, so come and take a peek.

Finally please keep an eye on our ukulele festival website at www.ukulelefestivalsussex.co.uk for further information and updates concerning the festival events.

Here's a message from Lawrie:

Thanks to everyone who turned up for the Paddle Round The Pier jam, it was great fun.

This month we shall be using books 9, 10 and  11.  We still have a few songs to do from 11 and we can play some that have worked well.

Book 12 has already been started so if you have a suggestion please let me know.

Finally the festival approaches so please keep the date free (20th September) and come along, I will have some flyers at the next meet.
