Know any more ukulele playing friends in London? Loads of people aren’t on this email list. For things like this, it’s handy, as the news could save you an inconvenience of going to the wrong venue. Please make sure everyone’s signed up so the news comes straight to yours and their inbox rather than in a social post that you might miss. Perhaps you could forward this email on to let your ukulele jamming friends know about this email list so that they can also join and know straight away if there are important updates like this in the future? Many thanks and look forward to strumming with you.

Not even remotely going to happen again. It was retro even in 2012. But the video is still a thing that exists.

13 Jun – Make a Music Vid & 14 Jun Uke Picnic

Hello,

Have you ever wondered how to make a music video & fancied having a crack at it? Our very own Elena will be running a workshop this Tuesday about that very thing. I hope you can join us. We’ve got some fun ideas up our sleeves!
Book your spot here.

The Albany have taken another booking this Wednesday, 14 June for Taste of London, so we’re going to be meeting near the Bandstand in Battersea Park, or, we can move to a grassy area nearby if we fancy. The George and the Hare and Hounds will still strum on. Make sure you’re in the Ukulele Wednesdays FB group or following on twitter to hear updates.

Strum with you soon!

24 May – Not At Albany – At Tamesis Dock

That’s right. We’ll be on the beautiful docked Dutch Barge (yes, they do food, booze and they take cards) Tamesis Dock on the Thames on Wednesday 24 May. With luck we’ll have a sun dappled strum then continue til pub closing.

Strum with you soon!
