~Have you ever been to a social gathering and someone just randomly gets out a guitar and starts singing some well known tunes? You probably have and you’ve no doubt experienced the euphoric feeling of everyone singing and playing together in an up building and enjoyable way.

Preston Scratch Band creates a similar vibe. It’s an opportunity to play popular songs in a welcoming and accessible group where the emphasis is on having a good time rather than strictly getting all the notes right.

The first session of the new season starts on Saturday September 7th from 11am - 1pm. The group meets at UCLAN’s Media Factory, Room 226. Organisers will provide books giving the lyrics, melodies and chords, and welcomes musicians of all levels of ability.

Preston Scratch Band typically meets on the first and third Saturday of each month, September to May.

For the September session the group will be playing these top three tunes :-

  1. The House of the Rising Sun
  2. Ziggy Stardust
  3. Make Me Smile.

Please note :- Children must be accompanied throughout by a responsible adult. Regarding admissions :- Donations are requested. No booking required.

Bring your instrument, bring your voice, or use the provided percussion instruments:-

  • Preston Scratch Band - Make Me Smile
  • Saturday  7 September, 11:00 – 13:00
  • University of Central Lancashire, Room 226, Media Factory, Preston Campus
