NMUG Classes

NMUG classes are only available to signed-up members, and the next season of classes starts on January 7, 2023 but, now that we are Zooming all classes, we may be able to offer even more in future. We'll keep you posted on any changes or developments!

NMUG is well known for the quality of our classes. All on Zoom, which gives us an international audience in the thousands. And we have an incredible selection of events planned. Remember, you need to be a member to take part, but once you're a member of the NMUG family, it's a snip at just $20 per class.

Hold your Saturdays in January, February and March 2023!
