Our regular sessions are on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at 7.30 pm. – 9.30 p.m. The Old White Lion Hotel at the top of Main Street in Haworth. Venue and dates sometimes changes so please check here for details. You can also find HUG players at the Bay Horse Inn, Oxenhope for an informal session on most Tuesday afternoons between 2.00 and 4.00 p.m. Just turn up!
HUG has been invited back to play at Wishbone Brewery’s Christmas Bar. Times to be confirmed.
HUG has been invited to provide an afternoon’s festive entertainment at Thornfield, Station Rd, Haworth. We need to be there 2.00 pm for a 2.30 start. We can only have a maximum of 10 people and we now have enough – thanks!
Eat, drink and be merry whilst playing some of our favourite Christmas tunes and wearing silly hats and jumpers (optional but encouraged). We’ll be carrying on until the slightly later time of 10.30 p.m. to allow for even more merriment. A hot and cold buffet will be served early evening (vegetarian and gluten free available -please contact the venue for any other specific dietary requirements) so bring your appetites as well as your ukes.

PLEASE NOTE! The forecast for December 1st is not promising so we are starting at 1.00 p.m. at the Church Steps for a short set and then going to the park to start on the bandstand at 1.45 p.m.
Sleigh Bells Ring ….. 🎄🎄🎄🎄 here’s the set list and timings (below) for Haworth Christmas Market on Saturday. Don’t forget your festive hats and tinsel. We’ll be moving from place to place and will have to share music stands so please buddy up with others. If you just want to join us for one of the sessions that’s fine just meet up with us where it suits you – Parsonage, Church steps or Bandstand.
1.00 p.m. – 1.20 Church Steps
1.45 – 2.15 Bandstand in Haworth Park
In between the Church Steps and Haworth Park we’ll wander down Main Street and sing a couple outside Cobbles and Clay and Hawksbys then move further down to The Fleece and sing a few there before going to the park – possibly via the Christmas Tree at the bottom of Main Street if there’s time and no-one else performing. Then there should be time for a warming beverage before we start on the Bandstand.
I suggest we start at the top of the song list at The Parsonage and then start at the top again at the Church Steps and on the Bandstand. It means we’ll do part of a set at the Parsonage and then repeat the whole set twice. See you there!

Our regular HUG session. We’ll be well into rehearsals for our Christmas concerts – Must Be Santa!!
We’ve been invited back by the Active Seniors Group who meet at St Peter’s Church Hall, Moorhead Lane, near Saltaire roundabout. They meet from 2-4 pm, but we will be performing a 45 minute set from approx. 2.15 to 3.00 pm. Be there in good time to set up. We already have enough players for this – thanks!
HUG has been asked to play for a group of older people who meet for a social afternoon between 2.30 pm and 4 pm. Need to be there in time to start playing about 2.45 latest. They meet in the Communal Lounge, so we probably don’t need more than 12 playing.
Our regular HUG regular session – all welcome! As well as playing a few old favourites we’ll be brushing up on our festive hits ready for our Christmas gigs. Ho ho ho!
