For the third year running, The NUGS visited 13 wards at the NGH and played a collection of well known Christmas Carols to the delight of patients, staff and visitors.

They started their day at the Market Square in Northampton town where they busked for an hour under cover of the market tents … the people of Northampton were very generous with their donations for Do It For Dementia…we hope to raise around £300!

It’s always great to see new talent, or find them.

Which is what happened during a recent YouTube browse for ukulele songs and groups.

Enjoy Ukebox’s original spin on some well known songs! Expect the unexpected from this eclectic group who take the ukulele to new frontiers.

This ensemble of 5 draws on the flawless tonal qualities of the Ukulele with a completely unique sound of their own. Along with some questionable oddities thrown in for good measure, the mixture of strong harmonies and strapping bass lines prove an aural and visual pleasure of original material not to be missed!

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
