Tomorrow night is our summer party aboard the Tamesis Dock. Whilst it’s a boat party, the Tamesis is a beautiful 1930’s Dutch Barge which, as it’s name suggests, is docked. You are free to come and go at whatever time you like.
For those of you who like to skim read:
Where: Tamesis Dock. Near Lambeth Bridge. Vauxhall Tube.
When: Wednesday 2 August, from 18:00(ish) til 23:30(ish).*
*Basically, head down after work. We’ll start strumming at 19:30-20:00 til pub close.
How much? Free!
Is there a bar? Yes!
Do they do food? Yes!
Do they take cards? Yes!
We will be using the Ukulele Wednesdays Songbook to strum songs from and we’ll be showing the chords/lyrics on screen but do grab a copy, just in case.
Ahoy me hearties. You are welcome to fancy dress if you like? Pirates? Hula? Whatever nautical theme you like.
See you on board!

I am so excited about our upcoming workshops that I had to write about it so you can see them all in one place. For every Tuesday in June I’ve brought specialists in their field to help you hone various ukulele related skills. Without further ado, here’s the list:
Tuesday 20 June – Write a song and perform it on stage with Tricity Vogue
Learn the art of songwriting by writing a song together – and then perform it at Ukelele Cabaret with Tricity Vogue. We’ll use well-tried tricks and techniques to pick a theme, choose a style, shape the chords and melody, and create a catchy tune with a singalong chorus.
Tuesday 27 June – Prepare For Your Open Mic with Lord Hicks
Whether you’ve played at a few open mic nights or you like the idea of it but have yet to dip your toe in, this workshop will help you consider your performance and bring your A-game with Lord Hicks.
Tuesday 11 July – Make A Music Video with Low-Key Ukulele
If you’ve always fancied covering your favourite song or recording your own original material and uploading it to YouTube, but want to be a bit more creative, this workshop will get you started.
Tuesday 6 June – Develop Your Musical Ear with Robin Brown
If you’ve always wanted to know how to work out what chords are being played in a song or what the strumming pattern is, these two workshops will help you to do exactly that.

Christmas isn’t great for everyone. For those who can’t afford it or are homeless, Christmas can be stressful, lonely and freezing cold. Many people die due to that coldness. It’s something that I think about every year, which is why I tend to do or organise things for Crisis. The Royal George last week raised £37. Crisis ask for £23 to feed, clothe and bathe a person each day, so I’m hoping we can raise a bit more than that between us. 🙂 I distribute the songs and set up/organise the jam nights for free, but I would ask that if you’ve had any benefit from anything I’ve done this year, would you do one of the following 3 things?
Hope you have a brilliant Christmas. 🙂
