Who we are
Hello! You’ve reached the website of the Retford Ukulele Group. Our website address is: http://retfordukulele.co.uk.
We are a group of ukulele players from Retford and the surrounding areas of Nottinghamshire & South Yorkshire, UK. We meet weekly to play ukulele and sing a few songs in The Ship Inn, Wharf Road, Retford DN22 6EN.
We’re not a business and have no intention of making a profit. We occasionally perform at events in support of the organiser’s charity or for donations to a charity of our choice. 100% of any money that we receive is donated to charity.
