Ukulele Society

We are the Ukulele Society ("UkeSoc"), here to bring people who are interested in the ukulele together and get them playing!

We welcome all levels of ability, from complete beginners to virtuoso players, as we hold both beginner and advanced sessions in our weekly Monday meetings.


  • President: Rachel Patricks
  • Vice President: Sophie Randall
  • Treasurer: Elise Simond 
  • Social Secretary: Harry Mills
  • Inclusivity Officer: Anna Jepson
  • Librarian: Oliver Mawhinney

UkeSoc is run by and for ukulele players and enthusiasts; we hold weekly teaching sessions, organise socials throughout the year, and perform across and outside of campus.

Our weekly meetings this term will be held on MONDAYS in FULTON 114.

We welcome new members of all abilities, and so host two sessions: one for absolute beginners, and another for those with a little more uke-ing experience. If you're unsure of which session to come to, come to both!

  • Beginners: 18:00 - 19:00
  • Advanced: 19:00 - 20:00

New members will be mentored in their first few sessions so that you don't feel completely out of your depth when you start out. This way, we can get you up to speed with your ukeing with the rest of the society!


Expect many socials throughout the year to help everyone to get to know eachother, that may include: Bar Crawls, 'Film (Shrek) Screenings and Pizza', 'Wine, Cheese and Karaoke Nights' and Nights Out in Brighton.


UkeSoc practice a safe space, zero tolerance policy, so our society space and time is a discrimination free zone. Our members can expect to be treated equally and fairly within the society time and space. You can come with any problems, uke or non-uke related to the committee members - we're here to help. We have recently given a role of inclusivity officer to Anna, so if you have any sensitive issues please feel free to speak to her.
