Music Train and the Royal Oak, New Mills

Saturday 1st November 2014

On Saturday 1st November, Stockport Ukulele Players sent 7 intrepid strummers on the Music Train from Piccadilly to New Mills.
We wowed them on the packed train with a train-based set of ukulele goodness
We oohed & aaahed at the fantastic New Mills Community bonfire and firework display
Then we strummed, hummed, hoo-hoo’d & supped at the Royal Oak
At the end of the night we made our way back, nearly missing our connections at New Mills & Piccadilly, but fortified by Bernie’s magnificent home-made honey mead!




Strumming all the way to New Mills



Spookulele at Seven Miles Out

We are lucky enough to have two reports of the evening:


This Halloween Stockport Ukulele Players sent 10 players to Seven Miles Out to play a Spookulele set.
Dressed in the scariest of fancy dress, we descended on Foodie Friday in Stockport Old Town. The market area was buzzing with people sampling the food from the many stalls. There was live music, face painting, craft beers & ciders, and all sorts of ghouls and ghosts.
At 9pm SUP started their spooktacular set, and played to a loud and appreciative audience until well after 11.
It was great to see, and be a part of, the great revival that has taken place over recent months in Stockport Old Town.

A scary night at the market. As part of the Halloween Foody Friday Market Celebrations SUP returned to Seven Miles Out for another entertaining night. A motley collection of witches, wizards and zombies ghoulishly appeared, ably fronted by Pennywise and driven by the thumping bass of the grim reaper.

A great effort with the costumes and performance with plenty of audience participation, a "bad" night was had by all.

Romiley Conservative Club

On Sunday 26th October 2014 members of SUP gathered at Romiley Conservative Club to perform at their charity event in aid of Beechwood Cancer Care Centre.

Some of us arrived early to watch the Werneth Swing Band, then there was a raffle. Then it was our turn. A successful afternoon, enjoyed by players and audience alike.

Thank you to the club for providing us with a buffet just before we took to the stage. It was very welcome.
