Welcome to the new UkuleleProject.co.uk website! The London Ukulele Project is now the Ukulele Project because we are now working with projects across the UK.

welcome to the London Ukulele Project

We are delighted to be currently working with:

Nursery, Reception, Years 3 and 6 in Meadlands Primary School. Beginner courses and a weekly club for Age UK Richmond, a charity that supports people in older life. Weekly online classes for OKMT for children and young people with additional needs and you can now loan a ukulele from Tate South Lambeth Library.

about us

The London Ukulele Project was founded in December 2018. Starting off with a Mass Christmas Busk we had over 60 ukulele players from all over London come together to play songs to commuters in Waterloo Station, all whilst raising money for charities. In 2019 we doubled our number to 122! This has fast become a favourite date on our calendar.

Thanks to The National Lottery, in 2019, we were able to put on a series of events including a children’s festival and workshops in schools with some amazing artists from the UK and abroad. We were also able to donate over 200 ukuleles to schools and community groups across London as well as a hospital.  

Because of the pandemic in 2020 we had to think of another way to bring people together so did this virtually and put together 2 collaborations ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ and ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ with over 170 ukulele players from all over the world! Including some A list ukulele professionals. Our aim is to one day host a Ukulele Proms at the Albert Hall!

We are so happy to be working with other chapters now all with the same aim of giving EVERYONE access to music to build confidence, communities, combat loneliness and promote wellbeing.

Upcoming Projects

Teachers Workshops - We are currently working hard to put together a program of Teachers Workshops with guest teachers including Peter Luongo and Phil Doleman. We hope too that this will provide opportunity for teachers to meet and greet and share their experiences of teaching ukulele

Current Projects

Past Projects

During the pandemic we had to think of a different way of bringing people together so we invited our ukulele friends from all corners of the UK and abroad to be part of a Ukulele Supergroup

We are an Arts Award Centre

What is an Arts Award?

A range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 years old to grow as artists and arts leaders. In England, Arts Award is managed by Trinity College London and Arts Council England.

What do you currently offer?

We can support children and young people to work towards their Discover and/or Explore Awards. Children and young people collect evidence in an individual arts log of their experiences of participating in arts activites, researching artists and/or arts organisations and their work, sharing their arts discoveries, creating a piece of art work and identifying what they have enjoyed and/or acheived and their communication of this to others.  If we can support your school, your student or organisation in working towards an Arts Award please get in touch for more information
