6. Shopping at M&S. Putting into practice everything you have learned. Of course, you don't have to buy anything..

Why not put the You in Ukulele this season?

Ukuleles come in all shapes and sizes. And so do ukulele Players
BUG (Bramhall Ukulele Group) are looking to recruit new U3A Members, to hopefully bring fresh ideas and songs to our current Songbook. You may have played Ukulele or Guitar previously, which would give you a quick start to learning the ukulele, but we would also welcome BEGINNERS, to whom we would offer lessons to get you going and even loan you a Ukulele if you wanted to try it first. For further information, please contact Jackie Harmer

Please see 'groups index' page for more up to date information on all of our different groups.
