HUG’s excited all over again!! This time because we’ll be at The Taste of Tasmania at 7pm on Wednesday 1 January. Tell your friends and come join us.

Light up the Tree

HUG is excited to be part of the entertainment at Hobart City Council’s Light up the Tree festivities. The event opens at 6pm on Friday 29 November at Mawson Place. Santa’s arrival around 6.30 is followed by family-friendly entertainment throughout the evening, culminating in tree light up around 8.30 pm. Hope to see you there!


Katie is HUG’s youngest member and her original song, Hawaiian Beach, has been shortlisted for the final judging round of the Australian Children’s Musical Foundation National Songwriting Competition, placing her in the top 15% of entries received.

Congratulations Katie from everyone at HUG for such a brilliant achievement…and we look forward to hearing you perform it for us.
