Horley's Ukulele Club
Horley's Ukulele Club meets on Thursday evenings Cafe Fifty Four in the centre of Horley (just near the railway underpass). Bring a uke along and join us or just come along anyway as we prepare for The Great British Uke Off coming to town shortly. No musical ability whatsoever required, we can teach you a couple of chords. We are soon to again face the might of the Guildford Ukejammers and the Woking Ukeaholics. What we lack in talent we make up in enthusiasm. See you at the bar from 8pm!
