Friends and family (over 18s) are welcome too! If you haven’t signed up yet then please do tomorrow at the session or let me know if you’d like to come (just so we know how many people to expect for venue capacity etc!)

Thank you all for being a part of making RUG such a lovely group. 2017 has been a brilliant year… we’ve done some wonderful performances, had some great sessions and learned a whole load of cool songs together. I am very much looking forward to 2018 (our 5th year!) and seeing what fun it will bring ๐Ÿ™‚ ALOHA for now, ย Jen ๐Ÿ™‚

***UPDATE*** RUG TO PERFORM AT CHAPEL ALLERTON ARTS FESTIVAL 2nd SEPTEMBER 12:45pm-1:30pm

Thank you to everyone who has helped make RUG such a wonderful group this term … I am very excited to welcome new players to the group and hear our more established members make improvements in their playing all the time. The gigs we do are always so fantastic and fill me (and I hope you and the audience!) with joy. Here’s to many more ukulele good times together.

Happy strumming and ALOHA for now ๐Ÿ™‚
