Five Thursdays in June

HUG meets on the first and third Thursday at Hythe Community Centre. Harry’s group meets on the second and fourth Thursday at the Exbury Club.  BUT, June has five Thursdays – what are you going to do to maintain your ukulele fix on the fifth Thursday?

Fear not, help is at hand!  Exbury Club have said we can meet there for a ukulele fun night.  We will play some HUG songs, sing some of  Harry’s songs, do some solos, drink some beer, have a chat, get some uke coaching, drink some more beer, whatever!!!  Why not bring your banjo, mandolin or guitar?

Start time 7.30 at Exbury Club on Thursday 29 June 2017, in the function room behind the bar – cost £1 if you are not a member of the Exbury Club.

Poole – have you paid?

Only 3 more HUGs until our trip to Poole. Just a reminder to those who still owe the balance for their coach seats, that this needs to be paid into the coach company in the next week or so…

Sandy also needs your meal choices please and the meal payments can be made over the next couple of HUGs..

There are still a few available seats on the coach at £15 each for Saturday 17 June 2017, for old or new Huggers, partners and/or friends welcome. To book a seat/s or if you have any questions, speak to Sandy at a HUG meet or use Contact Us form.

New Forest Ukulele Festival

Don’t forget, the New Forest Ukulele Festival is taking place on the 20 May 2017, at the New Milton Memorial Centre 11:30 am – 8.00 pm.  Admission is £5.00 per person, pay at the door, no advance tickets.

HUG is not playing, but take your uke so that you can join in with the 30 audience participation songs from the 15 ukulele groups that will be playing or join in the workshops.  For budding soloists among you, there is also an open mic session.

For latest information see NFUF on Facebook.

Gig list updates

Please note that the gig on 18 May 2017 has been cancelled, there are two new gigs in May and the date of the Hythe Mistletoe Fayre has changed.  Please update your diaries accordingly.
