When, Where and Who?

All about Worthing Uke Jam

When?

Wukulele usually meets on the third Sunday of the month. We start playing at 12 noon and finish at 2pm.

Where?

Our regular venue is upstairs at Worthing Rowing Club – a splendid Art Deco building with sea views at Splash Point, Marine Parade, Worthing, West Sussex BN11 3PN. The Rowing Club kindly run a bar for us during the jam. Please see this map for directions.

Worthing Rowing Club

Who?

We welcome everyone from age 16-116. The group ranges from absolute beginners to folk who've been playing for years (some of whom still struggle with the E chord...). We also have expert players, and a few regulars who like to come along just to sing and cheer us on. We're a friendly bunch and ability (or lack of) is no barrier to enjoying the jam!

Background

Wukulele started in 2009 when Daniela Gargiulo moved to Worthing. She had previously set up Brighton Ukulele Sundays – the first uke jam in Sussex. Moving to a new town she wondered if anyone else wanted to jam. From the very first session it was apparent that Worthing is a ukulele haven, harbouring scores of secret uke players. The runaway success of Wukulele inspired uke jams to set up in neighbouring towns of Littlehampton, Lancing and Shoreham – and Brighton now has two uke jams. We heartily recommend you try them all! Visit our Friends page for details.
     In 2010 Daniela organised Wukulele Festival. The first South Coast International Ukulele Festival was an epochal event which affirmed Worthing's status as ukulele capital of the world. Following this she handed over the Wukulele reins to the capable hands of Harriet Booth. Under Harriet's sterling direction Wukulele continues to go from strength to strength and now also occasionally flash mobs in unexpected places. Harriet spends all her spare time compiling widely celebrated Wukulele Songbooks (which are enjoyed worldwide) and hosts the best uke jam birthday parties in the land.
