Skiffle Session & Uke Club

Sun, 28th July :: 12pm - 2.15pm

Join us for an afternoon of skiffle music in the 1950s welfare hall! Enjoy our own band, Hop, Skiffle and Jump performing from 12pm until 1pm, followed by our Uke Club from 1.15pm until 2.15pm where you can develop your ukulele skills.

Skiffle music had a major influence on popular culture, with many of its followers going on to form the bands that shaped pop music as we know it, such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Simple catchy songs played on easily affordable acoustic instruments gave young people the chance to make their own music.

Come along and develop your ukulele skills from 1.15pm until 2.15pm! It’s best to bring your own ukulele but we have one or two to lend.

As with all daytime events, you can use your Unlimited Pass or Friends of Beamish membership to enjoy this special event.
