North East and Cumbria Uke Sessions, Classes, etc.

2017-08-20 NEukersMap v2 600x302

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!

In 2011, 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 page.

Ukulele Clubs, Sessions, etc.  on a LOVELY MAP!

  • Warning: The map depends on an app to read the spreadsheet – and on 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 – and leave a Comment to give me a nudge!
