The Society has two Conventions every year, normally on the first Sundays of April and October.
The Conventions are very relaxed in nature and are a great opportunity to see some excellent performers as
well as to meet and interact with other ukulele players
from all over the country. The atmosphere is always very friendly.
All members are invited to play two songs in one of the concerts and backing is provided (if you wish) by
"Rumpole" Bailey on keyboards and Dave Griggs on bass. Performances are usually videoed and a video of your performance may well be
placed on the USGB's YouTube channel and linked from the Videos
page on this site.
Where possible, the Conventions include a workshop between 11 am and 12 noon.
The subject for the workshop at the Autumn convention is yet to be confirmed.
