The set list for the practice session on 20 October 2016 is now available HERE.
Well not quite, but it is time to book your place at the HUG sensational Christmas meal – food and ukuleles, who could ask for more?
The Boathouse at Hythe Marina has been booked for Friday 2nd December, 7.00 for 7.30pm – friends and family welcome. Click HERE for the menu. Please print off your own copy and hand it to Sandy at HUG with your meal choices marked ….. there’s no immediate rush for this, any time over the next few HUGS will be fine.
However, our group has grown since the last time we visited The Boathouse, so to ensure your place/s on 2 December 2016, please bring £5 deposit per person to the next HUG on Thursday 6 October. If you won’t be there on 6 Oct, but would like to come to the Christmas meal, please complete a CONTACT US form with XMAS meal as the subject and include the number of seats you would like to reserve.
The Boathouse is happy for us to bring our ukes etc. and play. For those that don’t know the venue, there’s plenty of parking and their postcode is on the menu.
September 2016 has 5 Thursdays, which means that we have a week off from playing ukulele this coming Thursday. However, if you still need your weekly ukulele fix, the Exbury Club is happy to welcome us to play in their convention room. The format is up to whoever turns up, but we can play standard HUG repertoire, play some of Harry’s songs, do solo party pieces or otherwise entertain ourselves. Usual start time 7.30 pm. The bar will be open, and there is a £1 temporary membership fee for non-members of Exbury.
A number of new songs have been added to Dropbox, please visit there to update your song folders.
HUG’s next gig will be at Solent Mead Day Centre, Church Lane, Lymington SO41 3RA at 2.00 pm on Wednesday, 28 September 2016. We will play for an hour and you can download the set list HERE.

Those HUGGERS playing, and all are welcome including beginners, need to be at Gateway Club and set up in time for a sound check at 6.45 pm on 6 September 2016. Club members will arrive at 7.00 pm and we will kick of the gig about 10 minutes later. There will be a refreshment break at about 8.00 pm and a second set from about 8.20 to 8.45 pm.
For those who haven’t been before, Waterside Gateway Club is at Oak Lodge School, Roman Road, Dibden Purlieu, Southampton SO45 4RN. The school is on the Applemore College campus: go past Applemore Recreation Centre and enter the first gate to the college – the school is on the left. Park anywhere.
