  2. Ukulele Festival – A first for Shoalhaven Heads (South Coast New South Wales)
    Shoalhaven Heads will be rocking to the beat of ukuleles on Saturday 16 April when the inaugural Shoalhaven Heads Ukulele Festival (S H U F) is held at the Shoalhaven Heads Bowling Club right throughout the day.

    The action commences at 10.00am with the first of 16 different ukulele groups performing. The groups are coming from near and far, including Milton, Nowra, Sutherland Shire, Wollongong, Kangaroo Valley, Huskisson, together with the local Shoalhaven Heads Public School group, SHUCKS.

    This will be an entertaining day for everyone interested in live music and enjoying a good toe-tapping time … great jams, great atmosphere and great songs. Entry is by gold coin donation, with all proceeds going to assist the Shoalhaven Heads Community Forum fund projects within the village. A prime example is the murals in the art gallery that has brightened up the swimming pool precinct.

    There is something for the whole family as the Shoalhaven Heads Bowling Club offers a child friendly play area and beaut meals in the Jerry Bailey Bistro. And for those making a weekend of it, there is plenty else to do, including visiting the three local wineries, strolling through the arboretum, the statue gallery or seeing the iconic “Bum Tree” and the ‘bird airport’, or for the more adventurous, taking a ride up Coolangatta Mountain on “Big Foot”. For fitness fanatics, Seven Mile Beach stretches northwards to Gerroa and across to Comerong Island to the south. Accommodation is available at one of four local caravan parks, the Heads Hotel units or at Coolangatta Village.

    There will also be some mystery prizes on offer, generously donated by the Berry Music Centre, Shoalhaven Heads Bowling Club, Mountain Ridge Winery and Coolangatta Winery.

  3. Hi Margi. I’m sorry to say that I don’t know of a Shepparton uke group. There was one in Violet Town but their info seems to have disappeared off the web, so maybe disbanded. Other that that I only know of Bendigo, Wangaratta and Albury. Maybe start one in Shepparton? Detailed info on how HUG started here – http://www.nutthouse.com.au/ukulele/hugstory1.html. Just one way…lots of others! Let us know if one does get going in Shepparton and we’ll add it to the Oz Uke Groups map. Cheers…Ginger
