Sunday Ukes Session is moving from The Biscuit Factory to The Millstone Pub, South Gosforth!

Bidding farewell to the Biscuit Factory . . . So long, and thanks for all the cakes . . .

Dot is sending a “Thank You” card to Ramy Zack, owner of the Biscuit Factory Art Gallery, for all his support over the last six years.

Many thanks also to The Millstone Pub, South Gosforth, for offering alternative accommodation at the drop of a hat on Sunday.

Some people turned up at The Biscuit Factory after everyone else had left to go to The Millstone.  Many apologies for the disappointment and the wasted journeys but the need to relocate was unexpected and without prior notice.  The Biscuit Factory has contacted Dot and passed on the phone numbers of those who left them.

Information on new dates and times for Sunday Ukes @ The Millstone to follow . . . watch this space!

The Sunday Ukes Session/Jam will be held in the John Middleton Function Room on the 1st Floor.

UPDATES – Thurs 7th and Sunday 10th June!

Thursday 7th June – The Cumberland Arms – 6:00 til . . . ?

Misspent Uke and mates are playing during the day with Lucy Falkenau (banjo) and Karl Barlow (bass) from The Attic Band at a charity gig Karl has organised at the Sleekburn Woodfuel Centre.

They expect to make it back to The Cumberland Arms, tired but happy, in time for a 6:00 start.  However, they also expect to peg-out about half time – so the rest of you will have to make it up as you go along after that :-)

(I won’t be at either Sleekburn or The Cumberland Arms as I have got a nasty bug and will be coughing and spluttering my way back to bed in a minute, dammit!)


Sunday 10th June – NO session at The Biscuit Factory:

Misspent Uke and friends are also playing at the Jubilee Garden Party at St Gabriel’s Church, Heaton on Saturday 6th June, so would like the day off on Sunday – so no Sunday session at The Biscuit Factory this week.


Ah! Memories . . .  three lovely Ukettes – Niccola, Sara and Heather – snapped by Allen after performing “Mr Sandman” at the October 2011 Misspent Uke and Friends gig at St Gabriel’s Church.

There will not be a Sunday Session at The Biscuit Factory on Easter Sunday – you will have to flaunt your Easter Bonnets elsewhere :-)
