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.

14th June Jam at 7.30pm

Hi ukers,

Next meeting we will be using books 11, 6 and 8.

Book 11 is what we will use at the Southwick Green Adur Festival get together. If you can get along to Southwick Green on Saturday 18th June at 12.45pm then that would be great. I will do a short workshop then we can jam out a few songs. Will then repeat the process at 2.30pm.

On Sunday 17th July we will be teaming up with Wukulele and playing in Littlehampton at the Jam of Jams. We get to play four songs and then share another four with the other jams who will do the same with us. It promises to be a great day out and we will practise the songs at our July meeting. Times and venue to follow.

Finally I have flyers for our festival which I shall have on the 14th and would be grateful if you could distribute among friends and family.

See you then

Lawrie

Next Meeting 10th May at 7.30pm

Hi uke players,

At our next meeting we will be using books 1, 3, and 10

Please help me out on June 18th on Southwick Green at 13.00hrs. Uke at the Duke is to play some songs and also give a bit of guidance for budding ukulele starters. I will have a few ukes for people to try out.

I have sent out an email to all the people who expressed an interest in Sargent Pepper so this is your last chance to be part of that project.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 10th.

Lawrie
