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.
The set list can be found HERE, but also be prepared to play Happy Birthday for anyone who is close to one.
Unfortunately, the Charity Concert at Cornerstone Church scheduled for Saturday 10 September 2016 has been CANCELLED. The organisers thank everyone at HUG for their support.
HUG members who are planning to play at the Cornerstone Concert on 10 September 2016 should note that there has been a change of set list, new one issued on 23 August 2016. Please destroy old list and reprint from HERE..
Hythe Ukulele Group will be entertaining the crowds at Hythe Marina on 21 August 2016 at the annual Waterside Raft Race. HUG will be playing in the gap between the penultimate and final races of the day and again between the last race and the prize giving. So, if you are attending the raft race, stick around until the prize giving and join in the singing with HUG.
The start time in uncertain as it depends on the racing, but could be anytime from 2.30 pm onward and will go on to about 3.45 pm.
HUG members: we will probably play as many as 25 songs, so this list holds 29, which should cover contingencies. Depending on start time some may get skipped overor we may play even more, so have your “generic song list” available.
Weather warning – strong winds forecast for Sunday so take plenty of pegs to hold the music down.
Our next gig will be at the Woodlands Care Home Garden Party on
Saturday 13 August 2016, when we will be playing two 45 minute sets starting
at 2.30 pm and 3.45 pm. Click HERE for set list.
