The Chichester Ukulele Workshop has moved!

We can now be found in the cafe at the Westgate Centre and our next session is on Friday 18th October from 2.00 to 3.00pm.

The group is for players of beginner or intermediate standard. Our aim is to develop right hand technique, play new chords and learn some of the best songs from the last century.

If you would like to join us message me or email [email protected].


The Chichester Ukulele Workshop is at the Chichester Inn on Friday 20th September from 2.00 to 3.00pm. Open to anyone who can play a few chords. Come and learn arrangements to songs from the last century. The Chichester Inn is at the end of West Street and has its own car park. (£5.00 plus buy a drink). Please message me or email [email protected] if you would like to attend.

My Aspire Class 4 years ago plus a few guests. (The version of this photo without me in it is better - see the banner for Richard Hales at Ukulele Junction). Aspire are still using the photo to promote their ukulele class even though I no longer work for them. Several of the participants are still keen players and are on Facebook.


The Chidham Ukes join forces with the Atkinson Family for a performance at Marriot Lodge Care Home in Chichester on Sunday.

Petition: Include expressive arts subjects in the Ebacc

Petition: Include expressive arts subjects in the Ebacc The English Baccalaureate, or Ebacc, is a standard which maintains that English, maths, science, a language and a humanity define a good education. The exclusion of art, music, drama and other expressive subjects is limiting, short sighted and cruel. Creativity must be at the heart of our schools.

Chidham Ukulele Workshop Weds Aug 19th Chidham Village Hall 7.00 to 8.00pm

This month's song is "Ain't She Sweet" and I must thank Don Webb for pointing me in the direction of this classic song with its lovely G diminished chord. If you have the Chichester Ukulele Club songbook you will already have this arrangement (its song No 2 in the book) so will not need to print out the attached doc.

I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter
Worried Man
Ain't She Sweet
You Ain't Going Nowhere
Ukulele Crawl
I Wanna Be Like You
Fly Me to the Moon
Rave On
This Train is Bound for Glory

Don't forget your percussion!
