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 on to the Crooke Hall Inn in Crooke Village.
In early 2016 we moved to the larger more comfortable setting of the Pavilion Suite at Wigan Sports Club, Bull Hey, Parsons Walk in the centre of Wigan
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.
Paul Swift, Club Chairman
