FOBP Tuesday Ukulele Group – An FOBP Activity

For the Over 55’s

We still have 40 people on the register and regularly get 27 people at the classes. We meet Tuesday afternoons in the Visitor Centre at 2pm for a one hour lesson with a professional teacher from Musica Kirklees, followed by a “cuppa” and an hour or so strumming and singing.

Social History Group – An FOBP Activity

Meetings are held in the Beaumont Park Visitor Centre on the first Tuesday of the month at 10.30 am. A voluntary charge of £3 per person is levied that allows us to cover our guest speaker’s expenses, a cup of tea and a biscuit.
