At You Ukes we believe that everyone can experience the joy of playing music. We know that the Ukulele is the perfect 'entry-level' instrument, it’s accessible, fun and perfect for anyone who wishes to explore their musical potential.


The Ukulele is the ideal community instrument, coming into its own when played 'en-masse', bringing enjoyment and smiles to everyone within earshot. We want everyone who wants to, to have the opportunity to enjoy and play this fun and engaging instrument.

  • Weekly Ukulele Club (Tuesdays) in the Unitarian Hall, Meadrow, Godalming.

For the time-being we are on-line with Zoom, we hope to return to the Unitarian Hall soon. We would appreciate continued contributions at the normal club rates (£4/person) and it's our intention to still make a contribution to the Godalming Unitarians for the room hire even though we're operating on-line; clearly all their bookings have been cancelled. There's a link below to pay through Paypal for sessions run by David and Shirley, simply enter the number of people joining the session. There's also a link for Caroline's sessions.

Our Origins

You Ukes was founded in 2014 as a Birthday present for Shirley Wardell from her husband David Faraday. Shirley had recently started to learn the ukulele and she wanted to be in a band. The first step was to find some more uke-players, so the You Ukes Club was founded (See External link opens in new tab or windowGet Surrey). In spring 2014, Shirley played her first gig with her husband and her new found 'ukulele-friends' from the You Ukes Club at the Bull's Head Cider Festival in Rake. More gigs followed: the Godalming Borough Hall, the Normandy Scouts, by early 2015 Shirley was ready. She approached the White Hart Pub in Farncombe and our regular Jamming Sessions started giving Shirley the chance to peform with her band on a regular basis.
