Honiton Ukulele Group

Honiton has its own Ukulele Group. They are a bunch of very happy people, who like to play the ukulele. We range from beginners to experienced, so you don't have to be a pro. to join. We play every week on a Thursday evening, usually at the Crypt at St Paul's Church on the High Street. Our meeting starts at 6.30pm and finishes at 8.30pm. If you want to know more about this group you can phone either Keith on 01404 42752 or Tony on 01404 815080.    When we get too popular, numbers will be limited!
Phone quickly if you are interested. 

We now have an items for sale page!!!


 So it won't necessarily be folk and it won't necessarily be East Devon, but if we think it will be of interest it will be here. We aim to publicise gigs, events and folk clubs. We want to promote local talent , venues and music

So if you know of something that should be on these pages let me know  Jolly

 Forthcoming featured event

 20th December             Belshazzar's Feast

David Hall South Petherton

8.0 p.m Tickets £15

Paul Hutchinson, accordion, member of the innovative and progressive Folk trio, Hoover the Dog, and Paul Sartin, oboe, violin and vocals, member of 'big band' Bellowhead and of Faustus, play as a duo like no-one else you've ever heard. Their music is breathtaking and wickedly inventive and their between-tunes interchange is as intelligent and hilarious as the music.

Start with traditional Folk music, add a touch of Classical and Jazz, throw in a bit of Pop and Music Hall, and top it off with wry humour for a unique live experience.
