If you have been along to The Cumberland Arms on a Thursday between 6:00 and 8:00 then you will know that we are sometimes bursting at the seams! To help spread the uke-lurve more widely, I invited all the other uke groups, clubs, sessions and classes in the North East and East Cumbria to pool information about uke-meets. Clubs from even further afield have since added details to the list, eg. Cockermouth and Scarborough!
- If you spot anything that needs updating, please leave a comment below this post and I will update the spreadsheet.
Map of Ukulele Clubs, Sessions, etc. j.mp/NEukersMap3
- Warning: The map depends on an app to read the spreadsheet – and me remembering to “rebuild” the map every time a new entry is added to the spreadsheet. If a club on the list below does not appear on the map, please see the spreadsheet for details!
