Thanks for visiting our website! Our ukulele club had it's first meeting in November 2016. Our club meets at:
THE RETREAT, 42 CHURCH STREET
BRAINTREE, CM7 5JY
The next two meetings will be on TUESDAY 27th June and TUESDAY 11th July from 7.30pm onwards. We plan to meet every fortnight on a Tuesday so we will put further dates on this website once we have agreed the dates with the landlord.
Our most recent "Gig" was Rayne School Fete on Saturday 17th June and our next "Gig" is Stisted Fete on Sunday 16th July. We had our first "Gig" on Friday 30th December at The New Deanery, Bocking where we sang oldies and Christmas songs! Our second "Gig" was on Saturday 25th February at Prince Edward Duke of Kent Court care home. We hope to do more in the future, if you would like us to come to your venue please get in touch.
For our club we will be using a bar at the pub that has tables, chairs, guitars fixed to the ceiling and walls covered with music memorabilia. Alan, the landlord, and his wife Lynn, are very keen supporters and hosts to live music and the cosy bar is made for our ukulele club! Please come and join us! If you want to chat with us first please phone on 01376 553204.
If you want to be involved, Please get in touch!
The song books we have compiled are on our SONGS page and can be downloaded for free. You can buy printed copies of these for £3 each on the night. Please let us know beforehand if you want one. Profits from the book sales will be given to the Unique Imelda Fund.
We are self taught players who want to play songs with others. We want to learn, teach, and generally get together with like minded people to play our ukuleles, sing a long and socialise in an informal atmosphere. We would want to welcome beginners, players, young and old, couples or singles - anyone who has fallen in love with a ukulele like we have.
WATCH THIS SPACE and send us an email to be added to our chain if you want to be kept informed of progress.
We've called our venture UKE ON THE BRAIN as Braintree has the River Brain flowing through it and what better to have on the brain than a ukulele...

One of our members, Rachel has a young baby daughter, Imelda. She was born with a rare chromosome disorder. It's so rare it doesn't have a name. In fact, she's unique. If you download our songbooks, or just feel moved to donate to a fund to support Imelda's ongoing care please click on this link. Thank you.
