The Yorkuleles - Ukulele Club York

Good beer, good company and great fun for uke players at all ability levels

Coronavirus Policy

As a matter of policy we would ask everybody not to attend club sessions or gigs if there are any signs that you might have caught the bug or if you have been in the company of anyone who has symptoms. If you have a raised temperature, a cough or even the normal symptoms of a cold or ‘flu we would ask you to stay away. This might seem a bit over the top but there are players in our club who have Asthma and cardio-vascular complaints, and there will be other vulnerable people in our extended families and social groups.

THE YORKULELES

We are currently FULL

For the last two years we have had an open door policy on people wishing to join us or visitors from another uke club staying in York on holiday wanting to join in the fun.

Although we would love to continue to welcome 'all comers' without reservation, we now have an issue with the size of the room and the number of players we can comfortably accommodate in it.

If you are still interested in joining us then please let us know. If there is space in the future we would still like to be able to welcome you.

There is a growing library of songs on Dropbox that can be found here.

NEW SONGS

You are very welcome to bring along any songs that you think may be suitable to play but be prepared to photocopy enough copies for everyone (although most of us are now using Dropbox and tablets/laptops so a better option is to send a digital copy to Tony).

Tony often makes updates during the week so it is a good idea to access the Dropbox page for the club's songbook from home before you come to the rehearsal and check that you have got each song that has an update made available offline if you have no way of accessing the internet from the club.

There will be a collection of a small charge (currently £1.50p each week) to help with admin costs.

    Hello Tony Just to say a big thankyou and well done for playing this afternoon. You all did well to play for such a long time and the music was enjoyed by all. It was very kind of you all to give up your own time to play for Age UK York. Not quite sure yet how much we raised until all bills paid but should be somewhere between £400 and £500. Thanks again to all of you. Regards
    Hazel and Judy

    I would just like you to pass on my gratitude to the group for all their efforts on Saturday. It was yet another superb evening, thanks in no small part to the Yorkueles. Everyone enjoyed their set so much and the group most certainly got toes tapping and the audience singing and joining in. So please thank each and everyone for a brilliant performance. With huge thanks

    A huge thank you from us all at Poppleton to Martin and all who played at Saturdays brilliant gig. The Poppletonians who played knew how fantastic it would be, and those who had never seen us before were absolutely blown away. Feedback the next day was incredible, our music filled the hall, the playing and the singing sounded incredible, and it wasn't only us! Audience participation was really enthusiastic, every foot was tapping and they all had a great time. They are still excited! This was our fifth concert for Kenya and arguably our most successful. The hall was full, everyone really enjoyed it, it raised a record £685 and every penny will go to relieve poverty and village development in Kenya. Thank you all so much All best wishes

    Saturday night was a real success and I want to thank you and the rest of the group for providing such scintillating entertainment. I was watching the audience throughout your set and they were enjoying it immensely. The whole evening was fantastic and we have received so many nice comments and many people have asked when we are doing another one! …… Thank you once again to you and the group for a wonderful evening.

    I saw the video on Facebook, you were all fabulous. I heard a group chatting about it in The Ferry, they said it was the best music session they had seen throughout Cawoodstock. Can’t wait for the Age Uk AGM.
