As a community group Goldfields Ukestra support the learning needs of ukulele players of all abilities within the Bendigo area, providing members with a safe, inclusive and supportive environment to learn and advance their ukulele craft at their own pace.

Goldfields Ukestra has sprung forward in leaps and bounds since its humble beginnings in 2015, where members used to meet for a strum around someone’s kitchen table. In 2017 our numbers grew substantially so we moved away from the ‘home based learning model’, found some club rooms, appointed a musical director and adopted the name Goldfields Ukestra. In 2019 we became an incorporated Association and today we have close to 50 financial members.

As a community group we enjoy supporting local events and have played at events such as the 2019 Bendigo Rotary Club Carols by Candlelight, the 2019 Dingee Gospel Festival, Senior’s Week celebrations, local markets, private functions, virtual Ukulele Festivals and our local Jigarre Jamming Camp Concerts.
