About Us

WHO WE ARE: The Babbacombe Ukulele Strummers held their first meeting on the 28th November 2011, with  most people novices to the ukulele.  Since then the group has learnt to play numerous tunes, given many public performances, and now has some 30 regular members including some with more experience.

WHERE WE MEET:  The group, known as the BUS, meets on most Monday evenings at the Precinct Centre, St Mary’s Church, St Marychurch, TQ1 4QY. The session lasts from 7:15 to 9:15pm.  To check the actual dates visit the Diary.

CHARGES: To cover costs there is a charge of £2 per person at each session attended Note: for new members there is no charge for the first ‘taster’ session.

WHAT WE DO: During the session we sing and play together to learn new tunes, practice others for performances, as well as learning new chords and techniques on the ukulele to develop our playing skills. And of course to have fun!

BEGINNERS: We welcome beginners who are an important part of the group and arrange separate workshops for those new to the ukulele on the basics of the instrument and how to play it.  See how to Join the group for more details.

OUR PERFORMANCES:  An enjoyable part of our activity is playing in public and we offer our services free of charge to charities and other organisations through our members and by word of mouth.
