If you have been to the Coorparoo Bowls Club, you will know we have installed a stage in the upstairs function room. We want to make more use of it and have been approached by a ukulele band to put on a concert. We are keen to take this opportunity and attract ukulele lovers and those new to ukulele.

Jams in July 2024 - 27th June 2024
Halfway through the year and lots more jams to come. Here's the summary for July. Don’t forget – the Westside Daytime jam is on Thursday 11 July because the function room is not available on our usual Wednesday. Final State of Origin night is 17 July.  You can record it to watch later, BUT you only get one chance to be in the Ferny Grove jam.
