The Ver Players charity fund-raising concert in the lovely Jubilee Hall is always a highlight of our year, and we are delighted that Andy Eastwood will be our headline act. He is one of the biggest names on the UK’s ukulele scene and a brilliant performer! There will also be solos by our support groups: Rag House, Teal and The Sunshine Band as well as the big Ver Players sing-alongs for everyone to join in on!
We are raising money for Earthworks St Albans:, a well-known local charity that offers trainees, often with learning disabilities or mental health issues, work experience and training in horticultural and land-based skills.
Ver Players is open to all ukulele players, from beginners to expert!

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.
The most wonderful, joyous and exquisite evening with Sarah Maisel, Craig Chee and the very special and surprise addition of James Agg on bass ukulele. We feel privileged to have experienced their combined magic, making a truly memorable evening. Thank you!
