The WonAleles started in January 2017 for the purpose of providing a safe space for uke enthusiasts to play their ukuleles. Meeting once a week, the group soon got an influx of new ukulele players especially beginners, many of whom had never played any instruments before. Most of the group has only started playing within the past three years, some members only within the past few months. The group is a fun, welcoming place where new members are encouraged to have a go. Music is played, laughter is heard and friendships formed all while playing the ukulele.
