Next Ukes at The Cumberland Arms and The Millstone | @thecumby | @MillstoneSthGos

Sunday 5 Jan 2014 at The Millstone 2:00 – 4:00

  • The room is available until 6:00 so no need to rush off if you want to hang around a while longer.
  • Everyone is welcome to come along on Sundays and/or Thursdays – not everyone can make it to both sessions.
  • More info about the Sunday sessions here: Sunday Uke Sessions @ The Millstone South Gosforth

Oh – and Sunday sessions are NOT every week.

  • Dates are added to the Calendar on that page as and when they are confirmed
  • plus updates are posted on this blog
  • and sent to the email list (please see navigation links for info about the email list).

Thursday 9 Jan 2014 at The Cumberland Arms 6:00 – 8:00

Because of the way Xmas and New Year fall this year there are very few people around so we are giving the next two Thursday sessions a miss.

That Was The Year That Was

We saw out 2013 with a bang at The Millstone Xmas Party today – more of a gig than a session!  Now that your family and friends know what you get up to, let’s hope that you are not grounded for 2014!

There are incriminating photos and videos from the 2013 weekend away in Hawes weekend circulating – it’s only a matter of time before they pop up somewhere on the internet.  When they do . . . watch this blog!

Best wishes for a very Happy Xmas and New Year!

Xmas Ukes at The Cumberland Arms and The Millstone | @thecumby | @MillstoneSthGos

Thursday 19 Dec at The Cumberland Arms 6:00 – 8:00 as normal!

Dot has confirmed that the possible Plan B mentioned last week is not happening, so it is business as usual (possibly plus some mince pies courtesy of The Cumberland Arms?)

Sunday 22 Dec at The Millstone 2:00 – 4:00 party time!

  • No mince pies on the house, as far as we know, so it is a “bring and share” event.
  • The room is available until 6:00 so no need to rush off if you want to hang around a while longer.
  • Everyone who comes along on Thursdays is always welcome to come to the Sunday Sessions.

If you have not been on a Sunday before then you might meet some new friends who can only come along on Sundays.More info about the Sunday sessions here: https://ukes4fun.org.uk/sunday-uke-sessions-millstone/

The Sunday sessions are NOT every week.  Dates for the New Year will be added to the Calendar on that page as and when The Millstone confirms dates with Dot.

Best wishes and – if you are not able to get along to either The Cumberland Arms or The Millstone  – Happy Uking Xmas! :-)
