The official club name is Severnside Ukulele Strummers Association or SUSA. The club is one of the longest running in the U.K. and our songbook includes over 500 songs. However, the club is open to ukulele players of all abilities and if you fancy a strum and a singalong you're very welcome to pop along for an evening.
We meet every Thursday in Kidderminster at St George's Social Club, Gilbert Scott Way off Radford Avenue, DY10 2ES
There is plenty of parking.
It is a social club so please do not bring your own drinks but use the bar.
We have hints and tips from 6.45 and the club starts at 7.30pm until 9.30pm.
We like visitors but if you decide to join us you need to be members of St George's Social Club.
Our Committee consists of Chairman John Browning, Deputy Chairman Martin Allen, Secretary Gaynor Butler, Treasurer Val Bradley, Membership Secretary Jackie Rouse, Gig Secretaries are Stan Penman and Loz Rouse. The Computer contact is Don Wasdell.
COVID 19 overtook us at the beginning of March 2020. We managed our sixteenth Anniversary Party before lockdown.
We had Zoom Meetings every Tuesday afternoon with members singing together and doing spots. This included visitors from all over the country.
Finally we were back St George's in August 2021
We knew it would take a while for members to be comfortable indoors but our numbers have increased and we have had two visitors whom we have only seen on Zoom.
In 2023 life has settled down. We were back performing to care homes, retirement homes and countryside shows. Our diary is filling up with party nights celebrating our own club anniversary, ukulele day in August and Christmas.
Our numbers are creeping up again but Covid is still around but we are back singing new and old songs, having request nights and having parties.
It is a lovely atmosphere so any newcomer reading this and wondering whether to come along - well DO. We have a couple of ukuleles for you to try before you buy.
