Our Regular Sessions

We meet twice each month at the New Inn -  in the garden if weather permits. 
You will find our regular meeting times and location details below.


The latest Songbook is ready to download from the Songbooks tab above.  


Poole Ukulele Pluckers & Strummers (PUPS) provides a twice-monthly event where ukulele enthusiasts can meet, play, sing, chat and generally have a good time.  Whatever your playing ability you are welcome to join us — from professional musician to complete beginner.  With lots of us playing together, the occasional duff chord is in good company!

PUPS has a long tradition of supporting local and national charities by passing on any donations we receive.  We regularly entertain at Care Homes and public events.  

Details of the bi-monthly sessions are below.  A new songbook is provided each month. You can download the latest songbook from the Songbooks tab above.  Check our Facebook page "Poole Ukulele Pluckers & Strummers" for news updates and any late changes to events.
