HUG Members: It may only be October, but it’s time for us to start practicing those Xmas songs again – you know you love them! Please bring your Xmas folders with you for all practice sessions between now and the end of the year.
Well, we have yet another month with five Thursdays, so if you are suffering from ukulele deprivation this week with no official HUG session, join us at the Exbury Club for a ukulele free-for-all – some HUG songs, some of Harry’s songs, some solos – you choose! Start at 7.30 pm as usual and go on until you get tired or they throw us out at 11.00 pm. There is a £1 fee for non-members of Exbury Club, no subscription required.
Instructions HUG members for access to Marchwood Army Barracks and set list for the gig on 28 July 2017 are posted HERE. This is a Hawaiian evening so grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts and flowers are the order of the day, rather than HUG shirts.
The 2017 Gig list has been update, will Huggers please check they have the latest information.
We’ve got a busy time coming up for HUG with three gigs in three days.

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.
The set list for Totton Carnival is now available HERE.
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.
