Horsmonden Ukulele Big Band
HUBB was formed in January 2019 and have held regular Saturday morning sessions at Horsmonden Social Club and The Gun.
We have performed at the Horsmonden Summer Festival, Pittlands Fun Day, Horsmonden Autumn Festival, 100th Anniversary of WWI Armistice, Sacred Heart School, Wadhurst and the Horsmonden Christmas Festival. We have also busked outside the Heath Stores raising money for our chosen charity – The Hospice in the Weald.
We meet every Saturday morning and follow a ukulele learning programme set by Neil Rigby. We use two venues for sessions:
Horsmonden Social Club sessions are 10am-12 noon. The Club has a projector screen so we are able to use multimedia as part of our lessons.
The Gun sessions are 11.15am-1.15pm where we try out new songs, work on current ones and revise skills.
We cater for all abilities and ages at both sessions from beginners to competent ukulele players.
For absolute beginners or those who feel it would be a benefit, we offer a short course of small group lessons. These will teach you the basic skills you need to confidently join us at our sessions.
Come and join us, learn ukulele, perform and meet new people!
HUBB Team: Neil Rigby, Maryanne Marsh and Helen Durrant.
