The Club


Wigan Ukulele Club was formed July 2009 when a few like-minded friends met in the Railway Hotel, Wigan to enjoy playing this fabulous little instrument. It later moved to the Keeper's Inn at Gathurst and then to our present home at the Crooke Hall Inn in Crooke Village.

It has always been our aim to be an exciting and entertaining performance venue for all forms of ukulele playing and to be a showcase for local and regional ukulele talent. We are always looking for ways to share and develop our ukulele skills and musicianship.The club family has continued to grow and grow to such an extent that its 110+ membership now meets over two nights.

Paul Roberts, Chairman



Supporting our Community & Local Charities


We regularly perform to audiences in a variety of venues with all monies going to charities, local and national. We take a donation as our booking fee for performances. Our main charity is Wigan & Leigh Hospice.

Maggie Dainty, Charities Secretary
