Open everyday, all day for people to chill, play, drink tea and coffee, eat chocolate and maybe even indulge in the odd ukulele sing a long!

Perfect place to recuperate between workshops and play sessions or to have a shop or rummage through the TREASURE!


Here you will find:


Comfortable places to sit, chat,have a quick game of bananagrams with friends or grab a ukulele and have a quick play.

There is always tea, coffee, biscuits and chocolate available! This is all free as part of your SWhoop ticket – woo!

There are also a few charity flapjacks or cakes which are clearly labelled and brought by participants. Please honour the system. It’s usually a Β£1 donation a slice or something similar πŸ™‚

Tea area includes THE GREAT SWHOOPY TEA SWAP….
BRING YOUR UNWANTED TEAS TO SWHOOP AND FIND THEM A NEW HOME and perhaps find a new fave for yourself!
I don’t even really have a kitchen yet still I seem to own an insane amount of hippy teas that I don’t drink! See pic – although I found a few in there I do – woo! Relegated to the back of a cupboard at my dad’s. I’m sure you also have such teas… desperate to be brought out and given to someone that actually likes drinking them πŸ˜›
I’ll have the normal selection of normalatea, decaffienated, green, earl grey, etc etc but I’ll also be brining ALL my random teas and hopefully some of you will love them. At the end, if they’re not all gone, they can be taken home to their new homes where they’ll sit proud at the front of the cupboard and actually get used. πŸ™‚

Ukulele with Emma

It wouldn’t be SWhoop without the traditional ukulele sessions! Bring your uke along! They’ll be a beginners workshop a day in the chill space on Friday and Saturday and a proper sing-a-longs in the chill out space on Sunday. Emma’s been playing uke for ages but is really just focussed on some fun sing along songs πŸ˜› She does have a ton of easy songs to share

Ukulele for beginners with Emma (singers and kazoo-ists welcome)
Ukulele Sing along (singers, uke, kazoos, whatever welcome)

There are a few ukuleles that can be borrowed for the workshops. Sign up required to use one of these.
They will be able to be purchased after the Sunday Workshop.

Either to have signed up for one of the ukes OR Bring your own πŸ™‚
