Oct 2011: Currently at capacity for regular attenders though attendance fluctuates and we normally lose and gain members around the start and end of the academic year.

New faces are always welcome but please be aware that on some nights you might not be able to get into the room or you might have to stand.

We have a bass player and "core group" of regulars who lead the songs in our songbooks. We are very grateful to members who often give up their seats in order to accommodate these members as well as members with disabilities.

There are usually two or three "spare ukes" around - don't be shy about asking.
