Welcome to The Ukulele Society of Great Britain

Our Mission
The Ukulele Society of Great Britain exists to establish and promote an interest in the playing of the ukulele and ukulele banjo in all their various styles and methods of presentation.

Since its formation in 1970, the USGB has worked to actively encourage the development of ukulele skills. We use a number of methods to pursue this objective, some of which are mentioned below. The Society is always looking for new ideas about how it can better promote the ukulele.
