Welcome to the website for the Ukulele Festival of Great Britain – one of the biggest and best ukulele festivals in the world, now in its SEVENTH uke-tastic year.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already planning for the 2016 festival – it seems like the dust has only just settled on the last one. A HUGE ENORMOUS THANK YOU to everyone who came in 2015 and helped to make it such a great success. You are the reason why we do it and you make it all worthwhile.
But enough of that! As always, we’re looking forward to another amazing event next year.
We’ll be bringing some of the most talented, most awesome, most funny, most fabulous, most unbelievable ukulele acts in the world to the beautiful festival town of Cheltenham in the heart of the Cotswolds; giving you the chance to learn something new or hone your talents at one of the wonderful workshops, or to buy a new uke or just lust over the fabulous instruments and more on offer at the stunning stalls. You can get out your ukes and play your socks off at one of the many jam sessions and the brilliant Big Busk, or show off your talents with an open mic performance. Best of all, you will find yourself at the centre of one of the grandest gatherings of the ukulele community, surrounded by friends old and new – hundreds of happy people all sharing in the ukulele love.
Last year, we sold out of tickets in a matter of weeks, so be sure to book tickets and workshops good and early to avoid disappointment
