Portsmouth Linux User Group

About Us

Portsmouth LUG is a group of individuals with a common interest in Linux/UNIX and Open Source software. We meet monthly in the Acorn Room at Broad Oak Sports & Social Club and anyone is welcome to come along.

New members are always very welcome, no matter what your skill level, even if you're just looking for a different system from the one that came installed on your computer. At these meetings you can learn more about Linux and open source software, get help installing Linux, or join in discussions on open source and other IT related issues. You can also pick up a Linux CD/DVD!

We meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 13:00. All are welcome.

The Social Club is a private members club. Whilst you are welcome to freely attend the meetings, if you wish to use the bar facilities you will need to be signed in by a Member and pay a £1 fee (Under the terms of our licence we can only supply alcohol to members and bona fide guests). You are also welcome to join the Club as a member.

BOSC Logo Decades Saturday 24th March 2018


We are Decades and this is “Story of the Man Band“.
A show created by Three friends that captures the real evolution of the “Man Band”.
Join Steven, Terry and Russell on a journey through the Decades and experience the man bands that changed the music game forever.
Let us transport you back to the 1960’s as we relive hit songs from the likes of The Beach Boys, music of The Jersey Boys and the ultimate man band – The Beatles. Why not rock out to some 1970’s Status Quo or hit the boardwalk with our tribute to The Drifters. We also hit the 80’s hard with our unique take on a variety of 80’s classics.
Choose life… choose the 1990’s. Join us as we celebrate our favourite one hit wonders of a decade filled with instant classics.
Then join us, as we celebrate the music of the group that made man bands cool again… Take That.
Story of the man band is a show for all the family to enjoy.

Three Friends, Seven Decades, One Amazing Show… Decades – Story of the Man Band.
