Where is it?
Ukulele Wednesdays happens concurrently in 3 London venues each week, see below for details. Join in at the one most local to you, or try them all out and see which one you prefer. They tend to feel different week-to-week, so worth trying each venue a few times.
The Main Venue
Has a projector screen. If you get there early and get a spot up front, you can see the chords projected. Songbook requests tweeted or shouted. People take the mic to lead. Best to bring a device with the songbook on, just in case you can’t see the screen. Usually, a bassist and a cajon player will be playing with the ukuleles to keep time.
