We’ve had an absolutely wonderful end to our gigging year… a huge thank you to everyone who came to play at the gigs, those who came to support us and those who invited us. I love that through RUG we have made so many friends, been able to support some great charities and enjoyed many fun times together. Here are just a few of the highlights from this last week…

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has come to join us at The Highwood on a Wednesday night, played at a gig or been to support us in 2014. Roundhay Ukulele Group continues to grow from strength to strength thanks to all your hard work!
We’ve has some incredible moments this year – from our recording session to playing at Chapel Allerton Festival (easily one of my highlights of the year!) as well as the gigs we have done for Dementia Cafe and PAFRAS.
2015 will bring us lots of new Ukulele adventures and I hope you can be a part of it.
Wishing you and your nearest and dearest a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
