HUG's Performance Troop

and friends


We try harder, and harder, and harder.....

Attendance is desirable, ability is optional, fun is  compulsory

Herding cats has nothing on a Ukulele group. 

Herding cats has nothing on organising a ukulele group performance

Below you will find below a list of performances which will be updated as we go along.

Our current Performance Songbook is available for download [HERE]


Muzodo is a program for herding ukulele cats which I have on a trial until the end of March 2024.  Once you sign up from a link, it should list all the performances with options YES / NO /MAYBE. You can then see how many have registered and for what. You can update the details whenever you want, add to your own calendar, change your mind etc. and it logs everything in one place....yippee.  It also has a very nice phone app. I can then use the list to update, confirm etc. by email in the usual way.... it is wonderful.


Unless otherwise stated, all performances are indoors, group tops or dark /black attire plus a bit of colour. You might want to join in on our optional second set fancy hat and shoes competition. We generally do 2 x 30 minute sets. Normal dark attire for the first set then add the hats for the second. We will get the audience to choose the best shoes at the end of the first set, and hats halfway through the second set. There will be prizes for both. Please aim to be at venues 15 minutes before the start. Let's go and make a difference....

Jubilee Court Care Home: New Year's Eve Party
