The concept and implementation of Halesowen Ukulele Group Strummers belongs to Alan Love & Ian Goddard (of Black Country Ukulele Players BCUPS ). They held the first event on Sunday 15th April 2012.  

HUGS is a free event

HUGS Learners

Roy (of The BCUPS) teaches our learners. He will teach you the chord to get you strumming in the main room with everyone else (free of charge).

This is what one of our new visitors had to say: 

"Took my first lesson with your instructor tonight , must say what a patient and talented man he is. Got to learn those four chords now before next week, might be able to play "the wheels on the bus" by then"


Welcome! Thanks for coming to the HUGS website. We are a ukulele group based in Halesowen West Midlands. We meet every 2 weeks at Halesowen Athletic and Cycling Club.

We are a group of like minded ukulele enthusiasts. We are of varied abilities but just enjoy a good get together to strum and sing.

We have now completed the process of updating our versions of songs . The BCUPS have kindly allowed us to use their version of songs all in .docx format. The other songs are in various formats (mainly PDF) and have the prefix HUGS_. These are suggestions and songs we have previously had a go at during previous events. All songs are now available from this website. If you have any suggestions of songs for us to attempt please use the 'contact us' from menu at top of the page (please state which site i.e. scorpex you have found song and key it is in if more than one is available). 

The songs we are likely to perform are under tabs for Official songs & New Songs (Unchained Melody, Peggy Sue, Midnight Special & Meet Me On The Corner).

If you do have difficulty downloaded and printing song sheets we do have a CD and a USB Flash drive with all the songs on which we can lend you. All we ask is you return it to the next HUGS Session.

We will update you when new songs are added via our facebook page.
