Following on from the success of the New Milton Beer Festival on 6th April, the Main Hall of the New Milton Memorial Centre was once again packed on Saturday 18th May for the New Forest Ukulele Festival hosted by M.U.S.K. (Milton Ukulele Strummers Klub). Festival-goers were able to watch eighteen groups on the hall stage and enjoy workshops and an “open mic” upstairs. The kitchen was staffed with volunteers who provided tea, coffee and home-made quiche and cake and the bar did steady business throughout the day. It was good to see so many people enjoying themselves at this increasingly popular New Milton venue. Profits amounting to over £1500 will be split between the Memorial Centre and the local children’s charity, Honeypot. M.U.S.K. meet on the last Tuesday evening of every month at the Memorial Centre and beginners are very welcome.
