  1. Hi. I came about your page while looking for ukelele groups in the area. Ive been trying to learn ukelele for few months now and was wondering if you are accepting a beginner in your group so I can learn along. Thanks.


    1. Hi Debbie,

      Many apologies for not replying sooner!

      Please feel free to come along to a session at The Cumberland Arms. We meet from 6:00 – 8:00 on the first three Thursdays every month – there is a calendar to check dates here:

      This a set of “FAQ” and my answers, in response to other people who have got in touch before coming along for the first time.  (Some of the information is repeated because it answers more than one question.)

      There is also a pdf file version if you want to print the FAQ’s page:

      I hope this is helpful and look forward to seeing you!

      Best wishes,
