About Our Club

We usually meet on the 2ND WEDNESDAY of the month

at DETLING VILLAGE HALL

and on the LAST WEDNESDAY
at THE AVENUE THEATRE, SITTINGBOURNE

(We make a small charge of £3 to cover the cost of the venue.)

Our Club:
The MUC began on 11 June 2009 in Kent.  We are a bunch of like-minded musicians who meet once or twice a month to jam to a range of songs from all music genres.  We range from total beginners, who have learned their very first chords with us, to more experienced ukers.

Our first night is in Detling Village Hall, ME14 3EY, near Maidstone, on the second Wednesday of the month. Due to an ever-growing membership and to popular demand, we are now holding a second night a month in the bar (on the first floor) of the Avenue Theatre, Sittingbourne, ME10 4DN. We meet 7.30 – 10ish.

So whether you are new to the uke or you are an old hand and want to play with others, you are all very welcome to come and join us at our bi-monthly get-togethers.

For more information or a chat about what we do, feel free to email us at marmiteukuleleclub (at) hotmail (dot) co (dot) uk  We also have a Facebook group if you prefer to keep in contact that way, search for “Marmite Ukulele Club” or click https://www.facebook.com/groups/270685837533/

    Hi Anna
    A good start, just testing this bit.
    Should be good with our own url.

    Great weekend, thanks for your company.

    HI Anna
    Looks like you have been a busy woman-thanks for the effort. Should the song books be able to open or is it me being an old duffer?

    I have just settle in the area after a long career in the service, and am passionate about learning how to play the Uke and the Banjo but have struggled trying to do it on my own, as reading music is not my strong point.

    would you be open to a complete beginner, turning up to get some help please

    Liam

      Hi Liam,
      Download “Uncle Rod’s Bootcamp” from the link above and have a go at that. You don’t need to read music – it’s all tabbed out instead. If you can manage the basics there then you’ll be absolutely fine at our club. Feel free to come along and join us, everyone is very friendly and will be more than happy to help you 🙂
      We’ll look forward to meeting you 😀

    Guys,
    Do you have a minimum age for the club? My 13 year old daughter is interested in joining.
    Thanks, Tony

      Hi Tony,
      No age limit at all, your daughter would be welcome to come along and see if she likes it. The next meet is in Sittingbourne on 25 November, where I suspect we might be practising some Christmas songs 😉
      Best wishes, Anna

    Hi MUC
    My wife will be getting a Uke from Father Christmas, although she has no idea.
    We would love to come along at your next meet at Detling on the 13th January if that is ok.
    She can read music to some extent and I wonder if you could send me a copy of your song/music sheet so she could have at least a couple of weeks practice before the meet.
    Kindest regards
    Dave

    Hi,
    My wife and I used to go to the now defunct meeting at the Plough Langley a couple of years ago and came along as guests to one of your Detling meets, I never got the hang of it but would like to try again now that my work pattern has changed and your nights are free – do we just turn up?
    Dave
