Here we are playing at Pevensey Festival, Sunday before last, a really well attended festival lots of great groups there and we loved the new venue. We played some of the recent songs we have added to our repertoire and we are happy to say they were very well received. Pevensey are such a friendly group and this is their third festival, looking forward to many more! There is a video of us playing some of the set on our face book page, here is the link if you are able to access face book https://www.facebook.com/groups/332110763536807/

RUE had a good day last Thursday, We performed on behalf of St Michaels Hospice at Tesco in Hastings, taking part in a 12hr donation event. Some of us then went on to the SMH shop in Rye to present a cheque for £400 collected during this year at various performances especially for St Michaels Hospice..
Wishing all our friends a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. RUE will not be meeting for the next two weeks, so see you Tuesday 9th January next year same time same place!!
We just wanted to share with you this mail from Maria at Sara Lee Trust
Dear Justine and the Rye Ukulele Experiment
I wanted to email to thank you all for giving up your time to play at our Christmas Fair on Saturday- you add such a wonderful atmosphere to the day so please pass on our grateful thanks to all the group, we are so grateful for your support.
We had a very successful day and have raised £2,665 to date from the Fair and Raffle which will allow us to provide essential care and support to many people across Hastings and Rother who are affected by cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
We are thrilled with the amount raised and thank you once again for everything you do to help and support us.
With very best wishes, Maria
