Hello and welcome!

Hello and welcome to the blog for Bay City Ukers! We are a ukulele club who started meeting in February 2011, and now meet up about once a month at the Golf Club, off Nelson Road, Whitstable. The idea was to create a uke group for people living on the coastal strip of East Kent who found it hard to get to groups in the more central towns.

Playing ukulele has become an extremely popular pastime again over the last few years and uke groups are appearing everywhere. Each is different but ours focuses on simply having fun playing together and doesn't take itself seriously. Beginners are very welcome and we can choose some easy songs to play if you have only just started.

Gordon's email zygite@gmail.com if you have any further questions this blog doesn't answer. Hope to see you there! The wearing of tartan is neither necessary nor obligatory, and if you have a non-uking partner, feel free to bring them along to shake their maracas and sing along.

Ukathong - Definitely not pants!

The first ever Whitstable Literary Festival Ukathon went ahead on 10th May at the Umbrella Centre in the town. Ukists, Ukers, Ukees and Ukanoobas gathered from far and wide to pluck, strum, sing, howl, bark, shoop-shoop and wimoweh to within an inch of their lives. Up to 130 people whooped it up, and by all accounts,  a thoroughly good time was had by all.  

Tom Hodgkinson entertained with a couple of numbers, and Val's team were on hand to man (woman?) the bar and tidy up. Louis and Al were fine wingmen. Many thanks for making it such a great success :-)

We hope that we'll be able to do it again next year - watch this space!

Best wishes,
Gordon
