If you are just starting to learn the ukulele, come along and sing-along. For part of the evening we play songs with well know chords, as well as some more challenging, but the emphasis is on fun.’

‘A small folk club with a friendly, informal atmosphere ... We mostly book performers of British traditional music, but we enjoy other styles as well. We like any member of the audience who wants to sing or play to have a turn, so have a couple of songs or tunes ready if you'd enjoy performing (but don't feel you've got to if you don't want to).  Every so often we book musicians to hold an instrument workshop in the day and give an evening performance in the club.’

‘Based in the ancient village of Fletching, near Uckfield ... We aim to give an opportunity for amateur singers of all standards to have access to many different types of music. The choir numbers about 50 regular members, some of whom are good readers of music with considerable experience of choral singing, while others are less experienced musicians who come because they enjoy singing in congenial company, while at the same time extending their musical skills. This wide range of ability enables us to perform some of the great masterpieces of the choral repertoire, such as Bach's St John Passion or Mozart's Requiem, as well as songs from the shows, partsongs, madrigals and folksongs.’
