the wales ukulele project

The Wales Ukulele Project was brought together in August 2021. The aim is to be a support for ukulele groups and clubs within Wales and to provide a starting block for people to find a group to socialise and not feel alone. It’s not just about the music but the social interaction every gets out of singing and socialising with others.

Our first event took place in August 2020 in Porthcawl. Around 40 ukulele players assembled on the seafront for an afternoon of singing and strumming songs. We hope to do more of these as they are a fun way of gathering people together from further afield.

We will be working with Ukulele clubs to help support those that wish to learn more and hopefully as part of the bigger picture develop their own local projects as part of the Wales Ukulele Project. We also have future plans to work with Library services and Local Authority Social Hubs to have taster sessions.
