Budding musicians are getting the chance to take up the ukulele.

The Alnwick Ukulele Group held its first meeting last week to give anyone who is new to the instrument the chance to practise in a friendly environment.

It says ukuleles are easy to learn (you don’t need to read music) and fun to play, especially in a group.

Meetings are held at the RAFA Club in Lisburn Street, Alnwick, on Tuesdays from 7.30pm.

Everyone is welcome to go along and give it a try. You don’t even need your own instrument, there will be some ukuleles available to borrow.
