This year’s Christmas Song Book is now uploaded onto the song book page. It is right at the top of the list and downloadable from the green lettered section. There may be some amendments to come though. You can get practicing anyway.
Take a look at the song book page for updates on City of New Orleans – 11b and Octopus’s Garden 29b.
Watch this space, more to follow shortly.

There’s a busy weekend ahead for the Experiment. Saturday from 12.30ish we will be performing in the beautiful gardens at Little Orchard House in West Street, Rye and on Sunday you can find us at Fair Fest. Playing at the Fairlight Recreation Ground in Commanders Walk from around 3.30pm. Come along and enjoy the sunshine and the ukes.
Pam, Graham and Justine, three of our members, are just back from the Big Busk at the Ukulele Festival of Great Britain in Imperial Gardens, Cheltenham.
“ We met over 1,000 uke players from all over the world to play from this years songbook. It was a wonderful weekend, with lots of jamming and a chance to pick up some new skills at the various workshops. We also watched an amazing variety of well-known performers from around the globe including The Mother Ukers, Craig Chee, Tomoko Sato, the phenomenal Taimane and the hilarious Hot Potato Syncopators. There was a lot of Haloah-ing going on!”
“There’s something about guitars, they’re just so big, you know what I mean?
You’re just like, “Ugh!” Its just seems so overwhelming and the Ukulele is, like the opposite of overwhelming.”
Come rain or shine we meet at The Queens Head, Landgate, Rye at 7.30pm every Tuesday evening. All are welcome from beginner, through improver to expert. We always have a spare Uke if anyone just ‘wants a go’.
