This workshop is suitable for total beginners (aged 8 - 80) and those who have made a start but cannot join chords together. If you have your own ukulele please bring it along, but we will also have ‘spare’ ukuleles for people to borrow.  
There will an opportunity the next day to be part of a performance of what we have learned – so make sure you invite your friends to come and see you at the performance - - they will be stunned! This a great opportunity for parents and children to do an activity together.
