Adderbury ukes

Adderbury Ukulele Group

Based near Banbury, Oxfordshire, England. We play at: residential homes, concerts, garden parties, meetings and anywhere that requires a great singalong.

We meet every Monday evening at The Bell Inn, Adderbury.  Adults and Teenagers of mixed abilities enjoy an evening strumming and singing popular songs from our Song Books, playing from 7.30 to 9.00 pm. Everybody is welcome and it's free to join. Though we have the room free of charge, we are expected to buy a drink to support the pub.

The group started around 2015, after moving from Hook Norton. Around a dozen players met each week to play a random selection of songs for fun. As requests for the group to entertain at functions started, we became more organised with music books, word books for the audience and our website.  Many players have joined, including two bass players after finding us on the website, but with so many people wanting to learn and attending classes, our numbers have grown to over 50.

Beginners

We have been running classes for complete beginners at the Bell over the last two years. However, the success of gaining so many members gives us a space problem at the Bell, so we have decided to move the beginners to a Thursday morning and currently use the Cafe in Horton View. We teach you to strum and play chords while singing songs. Numbers are limited, so let us know if you want to give it a try and juniors under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. We can lend you a ukulele to try, but If you want to buy a ukulele, basic ones start from about £20.00 and please ask for advice. Either email us through the Contact page or drop in to see us. 

A 12 week Beginners Class started on Thursday 4th July from 10:00 am to 11:00 am at the Cafe in Horton View, Banbury. There is a charge of £2.00 per session and you will need to print off the Beginners Book from the Song Book page.
