Tickets – £8.00 available from the Reception at the Centre

11:00 – 12:00 noon:- 10 minute Solo and Duo spots by MUSKers

From 12:00 noon, each group is allowed a time slot of 30mins to include getting on and off the stage (approx, 4 or 5 songs depending on the length of the song and how much introduction). We expect about 12 groups playing including the beginners group accompanied by Jane Lane and Uke Box Glory, plus the Lounge Room Lizards with the beginners noodling group.

Steve will be running the open mic session which will run all day in the Festival Room upstairs.

The beginners and noodling groups are in the Hampshire room located upstairs straight ahead.

There is a well stocked bar, tea, coffee, cakes and snacks. There are many food outlets within 3 minutes walking distance of the centre.

There will be a raffle with lots of prizes and the star prize is a Beautiful Ukulele.

One thing has changed since you were last here and that is to do with car parking. We are no longer able to use the overflow car park behind the Indoor Bowls Club. when our car park is full there are several car parks within 5 mins walking distance of the centre.

Tickets are available now or at the door £8.00 for playing or non-playing, children under 12 Free. Tickets can be purchased from Carole in advance. Please contact her either by phone; 01425 629451 or by email: manager@memcentre.co.uk. You can pay by bank transfer, cheque, card in person or over the phone. (NOTE: if your address does not have a house number our card machine won’t accept payment over the phone.) Your ticket will be numbered and can be collected at the door.

Please book your group in asap with Pete, you must send him a list of your songs, so that songs are not duplicated. Two of these songs must be for audience participation. These MUST be in WORD format and all verses and choruses printed out in sequence order, to make it easier for scrolling through on the screen.

Pete hopes this is not too much information but he hopes that it will make it easier for a smoother operation.
