About the South East Ukulele Project

The South East Ukulele Project opened its doors in October 2021 after Tara (The London Ukulele Project) met Justine online in the ukulele community during lockdown. The South East Ukulele Project is based in Ascot/Bracknell we support ukulele players all over the South East. This is a large area so we are always on the look out for volunteers and ambassadors of the project to support us with our goals. Are you interesting in helping out?

What are our goals? Well, in a nut shell our goals are to promote music for well-being and bring people together through the joy of ukulele playing. We do all this through so many ways, but predominantly by raising money to buy ukuleles or collecting unloved ukuleles and donating them back into the community. We help to connect people to other ukulele players, local groups and ukulele events. We offer workshops, share music resources, face to face or online lessons  and much much more!

We are passionate about inclusivity and ensuring we support those who would not normally get access to ukuleles otherwise.  This is why we are passionate about bringing ukuleles to libraries as this gives people the chance to borrow a ukulele for free. We also help adults with additional needs to play ukulele and this was the first group we set up in January 2022. Two years later The Frimhurst Ukuleles are still going strong!

If you are based in the South East and interested in learning the ukulele or are keen to have a community group set up in your area please do get in touch with Justine. 

To be notified of our news and when our classes are starting please sign up to our newsletter.

Bracknell Library ukulele loan scheme

Ukuleles in Libraries

We are extremely excited to have donated two ukuleles to Bracknell Library, in the Lexicon, launched in March 2022.  We had a great day at the Ukulele Demonstration with many people enjoying the music but also the opportunity to make new friends and find a new ukulele group. This scheme has proved to be very popular, now you can borrow a ukulele for free as well as a book, what's not to love! 

Are you a library in the South East keen to offer something extra?

Past Events

Through virtual ukulele duets during Lockdown, Justine raised just under £1.5k for Refuge UK charity in Feb 2021. This was a great way to not only raise funds and awareness of Refuge UK but to also connect with other ukulele players.
