These packages work great as birthday parties, celebrations or just for a bit of fun. You can choose what you want to do and build your session from there. Once you know what you want, drop me an email and I’ll get a price back to you.


I live and work in Raunds, East Northamptonshire. However, if you want to book a session further afield please let me know, but understand travel expenses may be needed in addition to the price of the session.

Use these steps below to build your own session, you don’t have to use them all!

Step 1: Choose a Location

There are several options in and around Raunds including The Saxon Hall, the Community Centre and the picturesque Stanwick Lakes. Venues tend to charge around £15 an hour. Alternatively we can use a venue you choose and book yourself

This is the fun bit! Packages are all about learning from scratch, so no prior experience needed. You can choose from a morning or afternoon course where we’ll learn the basics and a few songs over the space of three hours. Or we can spend a whole day and take more time learning to play a greater number of songs.

Half day sessions run from 10-1pm or 1-4pm. A whole day session is 10am -4pm with a 45 minute lunch break (food not provided)

Session prices depend on numbers, as a rough guide a half day session starts from £20 per person and a full day session starts from £35 per person.

Step 3: Choose an Instrument Option

A ukulele is a really affordable instrument. It’s best to buy a soprano or concert size when you’re starting out. You can choose to bring your own instruments, or you can order your own set of ukes for participants or just for the person the celebration is for and all bring your own.  

You can hire a ukulele from me for £10 per instrument

A soprano ukulele (to buy) price starts from around £25

Keep the memories of the session alive by adding a photography package to your day. Photos will be taken by Debra Grant Photography (my friend who has taken all the photos for this site) and you can have a presentation album delivered shortly after the day.


Most of the photography on this site was taken by Debra, all the pictures on this page were too. You can get a good idea of just how amazing your shots will be!

There’s even an option for videoing the final performance!

Step 5: Choose a Way of Inviting your Guests

My friend Emma at One Off Maps can design and make bespoke maps especially for the occasion, she’ll even make the invitations for you. These specially designed maps and invites will personalise the package even more and make your party even more special!
