A little bit of history. 'The Spectacles' was formed and founded by Paul Willoughby, and Joanna Davison in 2012, made up of uke players who had played with Paul. Paul passed away in 2017, but the band has flourished with Paul's spirit there with us everyday. Joanna, Paul's partner plays a leading role in the band.
The full cast of Spectacles is
Joanna Davison - uke, percussion and melodica
Queenie Holmes Bass Uke
Jenni Moore Uke and banjolele
Lee Jones Uke and percussion
Clare Terwiel  uke
Merryn Statham Uke.
We love to play and get a huge amount of enjoyment out of our practices and performances. The band is a very important part of each of our lives. We play at all sorts of things, conferences, birthday parties, wedding anniversaries, fringe festivals and political events to name a few.

* Free to all paid members. Entrance fee of $5 for non-members.

This is getting quite addictive! We love our Mahjong and we think you should try it too. Join us for a game of strategy and wit, and experience this old traditional game of Mahjong.

Mahjong is a strategy game that originated in China. It's similar to rummy, but it's played with tiles instead of cards. Generally, you play with 4 people. The goal is to form 4 sets or sequences and a pair, creating Mahjong!
Bring your thinking hats :)
