Welcome to the London Ukulele Project

Music for Everyone

Charity Single Available to Download 20th August!

During the 3 months of lockdown it was important to us that we, in a roundabout way, still fulfilled our mission of bringing people together. We also wanted to raise money for the Covid-19 frontline. So, we asked a number of artists to record ‘With a little Help From my Friends’ and invited ukulele players to join in the final chorus. We are so delighted that we had over 100 ukulele players involved and are super pleased with the video that you can now watch on our YouTube channel. Thank you to everyone who gave us their time and supported this project. Please help us in spreading the ukulele love! any likes, shares, comments, donations are very gratefully received. 50% of the profits will go to NHS Charities Together, 48% Help Musicians, 2% London Ukulele Project

Our Mission

The London Ukulele Project believes that music should be accessible to EVERYONE, regardless of their age or ability. We also believe it is a fantastic tool to promote wellbeing through building friendships, communities and helping to combat loneliness. 

Founded in December 2018 we raise funds to provide FREE ukulele sets to schools and community groups using the ukulele to promote wellbeing. We do this through hosting events, projects, donations and grants.

Our events have included a children’s ukulele festival, mass busks at Waterloo Station and free workshops in schools and for Age UK Richmond. We have donated over 200 ukuleles to schools and community groups, for more information check out our ukulele family.

This year we hope to open up our Membership site…………………..

for teachers and ukulele group leaders…

LUP Membership

COMING SOON! Our membership site is very nearly finished (at last!). It is aimed primarily at teachers and group leaders, and an annual subscription will give you access to all of our teaching resources.

By becoming an LUP member you will have access to everything that you need to teach ukulele in school or to start a ukulele group or after-school club, including an adult beginners’ course and a children’s syllabus. For our teacher members, each song or melody comes as a downloadable pdf, a powerpoint presentation and video.

Individual membership is aimed at teachers who teach privately or who are considering launching a ukulele club and don’t quite know where to start. Membership not only gives you all the tools you need to start teaching the ukulele, it also supports the work that we do, allowing us to donate ukuleles and support ukulele artists. It will also include workshops and tips and tricks from some of the leading ukulele teachers and virtuosos around the world! 

As well as all this, membership includes entry to our teachers’ workshops, entry to competitions to win prizes for your school, priority tickets to future events, and annual songbooks of the year’s greatest hits. We are very excited about this new project and can’t wait for you to join us in it.


We are very excited to have founded The London Youth Ukulele Orchestra for school aged budding ukulele virtuosos.
