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.

2015, and the Second Whitstable Ukathon! 

Our first meet-up of 2015 was another outstanding success, with 44 ukanoobas going for it at the Golf Club, where we managed to achieve just the right balance between bonhomie and brouhaha,  enthusiasm and mania, hurrah and herrumph to produce an evening of great songs and happy faces.

Our next BCU session is on Thursday 19th March, but already plans are proceeding apace for the SECOND GREAT WHITSTABLE UKATHON on Saturday 2 May 2015. This will be an evening of four-stringed shenanigans to raise funds for Médecins Sans Frontières.  Last year we had over a hundred ukers singing, howling, strumming and hooting, so make sure you've got the date marked in your diary - details will be posted here.

Best wishes,  see you on the 19th :-)
