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.

Christmas Jam 8th December at 7.30pm

This is our last meeting of the year so the Christmas book must come out. Take a look at the songbook links and you will see we have a new 2015 version which will be the one we will use. It is only two songs different from the 2014 version, so if you use a paper copy you can simply print off Twelve days of Christmas on page 12 and Jingle Bell Rock on page 10 and tuck them in your old copy.

We will also continue the new songs in book 12 and revisit book 10.

So to sum up you need books 10, 12 and Christmas 2015.

If you're not coming to the Christmas meeting may we wish you a splendid festive season and good strumming in 2016.

Finally Meriel's Secret and Blackcap are playing at the Three Graces in Portland Road, Hove on the 12th of December at 8.00pm. There will be a communal jam at the end so bring your uke. Hope to see you there.
