Who are The Ukulele Riff-Raff?

We are a group of amateur singers and instrumentalists in the Alnwick area who enjoy the fun of making music together.


We meet:

  • Every Tuesday evening
  • From 7.15 pm for a couple of hours
  • RAFA Club, 15 Lisburn Street, Alnwick, Northumberland
  • Cost: FREE at present - but sometimes we have a small charge per session (varies from £3 to £5) to cover the cost of tutors etc.

Fancy singing with us?

  • and playing the ukulele?
  • or learning to play the ukulele?
  • or playing a percussion instrument?
  • or maybe just singing?

If you are interested, come and join us in the RAFA Club on a Tuesday evening. Visitors are very welcome - (No charge on first visit)
