Merry Christmas

“We wish you a Merry Christmas”

HUG would like to wish a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
to all our friends, supporters and audiences and look forward
to playing for you again in 2018

Fifth Thursday in November

30 November will be the fifth Thursday in the month so no HUG and no Harry’s session.  However, you do not have to miss the whole week without playing the ukulele.  The Exbury Club are, as usual, happy for us to use the function room where we can play some HUG songs, some of Harry’s tunes and do some solos or small group songs as well.  usual time, 7.30 pm to 9.30 or we can go on a bit longer for those who have the stamina.

Ukulele charity auction

Braintree Ukulele Club has been in touch with HUG.  The club is auctioning online a new concert ukulele (Brunswick) signed by the members of the Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain. They had it signed when they went to see them at Westcliff, Southend in April. All monies will go to their “Unique Imelda” Charity Fund. Please see the front page of their website for details.

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.

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.
