December 2018 Club Nights

Please note the following arrangements for our club nights around Christmas:

Tue 11 Dec & Tue 18 Dec – We’re at the Lewis Club, as usual.

Tue 25 Dec Xmas Day – BREAK.

Tue 1 Jan New Year’s Day – BREAK.

We return to the Lewis Club on Tue 8 Jan 2019. New members welcome. Check out our annotated map & transport information.

At the beginning of the year we posted about Steve Phillips, who has been playing a song a day on his uke to raise money for Solar Aid, which funds providing safe lighting for people in Africa. He’s been doing really well, covering a great variety of tunes. If you’ve not yet got around to donating, it’d be great if you could spare a couple of pounds.  In return, as a thank you, at the end of the year he will send copies of all the arrangements he’s used.

Here he is playing Rock ‘n’ Roll Winter by Wizzard:

PLUC – The First Decade!

Well, this month PLUC turned ten years old. Many thanks to all our ex-members & WordPress readers who kindly sent us best wishes!

We celebrated alfresco in the Lewis Club’s garden, along with home-made cake from Gail, our long-distance commuter, who comes from Colchester whenever she’s visiting her family in Catford. Read the rest of this entry »

Next month is PLUC’s tenth birthday.

Founder, Simon, is doing us a blast from the past by digging out the original songbooks used for those early sessions. And to contrast with that, the current regulars have voted on their favourite & least favourite numbers of the one hundred & nine tunes we now play, so we will be announcing our latest PLUC Top Ten Tunes & slotting them in too on the night.

Pratts Bottom Village Fete May 2018

This year’s fete saw the rain start just as we started performing! But we remained largely dry under the marquee, playing two sets of twelve songs in each half, each around forty-five minutes.

Once again we had a very enjoyable afternoon performing at the Pratts Bottom Village Fete. The rain held off & things weren’t as windy as last year!

Here are a few photos of us between sets. As always, we’re available for bookings so contact us if you’d like us to perform at your event.

Hollesley 2016 – Farewell

It was that Hollesley time of year again, but sunny Suffolk was a mix of joy and sadness as it was to be the last year at this site. Still it didn’t dampen the spirits, the revelry or uke playing.

Pratts Bottom Village Fete May 2016

This year saw fine weather for our annual Pratts Bottom Village Fete gig so Chris arranged for us to be outside under a gazebo, instead of indoors in the Village Hall.

The wind proved an entertaining challenge: whilst we had remembered to bring pegs to ensure our songsheets stayed in place, Bob’s music stand decided to swing round like the sail of a boat &, at times, Colin had to hold down his pages with his foot – an interesting new playing technique!

We had an excellent day. Andrew has caught some of our setting up, clearing down and the obligatory post gig drinks in the local hostelry in this set of photos: Read the rest of this entry »
