Have a look at the events calendar on the right to find out when our next get together is…

Ver Players is a community ukulele group based in St Albans. Founded in 2012, the group has grown to around eighty members of all ages, who meet once a fortnight to sing, play and unleash their inner creativity. The group alternates between small, focused sessions in St Albans’ The Courtyard Cafe and larger old-fashioned singalongs in the The Hare & Hounds, a local pub. It’s a fantastic opportunity for people to get together and experience live music.

Members typically join as complete beginners before quickly gaining confidence as they realise they can start to produce real music. The open, collaborative spirit ensures a fun and friendly atmosphere to learn, laugh – and ‘lose yourself in the ukulele’!

We also run a programme of ukelele workshops and can provide one-to-one teaching. To join us, take a look at the membership page.

Ver Players wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year!

We’ve had a lot of fun in the last few weeks playing the festive favourites along with less familiar songs and carols, accompanied by a host of ukulele players.
