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.

The Great Whitstable Ukathon and the Whitstable Ukulele Festival have both been and gone, to triumphal reviews in such esteemed organs as the Whitstable Times letters page.

So after such a great plucking summer, why not come along to the next Bay City Ukers evening and shake off the Autumn blues with a beer and a sing-song at the Golf Club, Collingwood Road Whitstable?

Bay City Ukers - it's like Bovril for the soul.
