Stockport Ukulele Players
We are an informal group of ukulele enthusiasts who gather to sing and play together on Mondays from 8pm at the Fingerpost Hotel
, Hempshaw Lane, Stockport. There is a large car park at the rear.
We are usually in the large room at the far end of the corridor if you stand with your back to the bar, but occasionally we move to the conference room upstairs. Just ask at the bar or follow the sweet sound of the ukuleles playing.
Everyone is welcome. From 7.30pm there is an opportunity for beginners to join a more experienced player to learn some basic chords and strumming. The main meeting starts at 8pm
We have a club song book which is available on the website.
Club books are available to borrow on the night, or you can buy one for £3.50. We are working on a new book for 2013 which will be included in the club books & books for sale and is available as a work in progress on line.
Feel free to introduce new songs for the club to consider, but be prepared to demonstrate the song and, if possible, have a few
copies to share.
We collect 50 pence per meeting from those attending which goes into the group funds.
We also meet at The Crown Inn
, Heaton Lane, Stockport on the second Saturday of each month as well as other events, such as our Busk in Merseyway Shopping Centre. Details are announced at group events and on the webpage.
When playing at other venues we will either play just for the fun of it or if we are offered a fee we will take it for group funds. We may also have specific events to collect money for charities in which case we will choose a charity which is local to Stockport.
