Well, it is not too long away now, so thought I would give you a reminder. On 20-21 July, The N'Ukes are hosting a ukulele weekender nr Chester for ukulele players far and wide. N'Ukefest 2013!
It's an informal affair, all set at the beautiful surroundings of the Shady Oak Pub, Tiverton, Cheshire CW6 9UE. It's also free to attend (though you will have to pay if you want to camp, more on that below!). So not really a festival, more a gathering, but we just liked the name!
It will be totally acoustic during the daytime, outside in the shadow of Beeston Castle, in this lovely canalside pub. Uke clubs and bands are free to come along and perform either solo or with others. Just arrive, let us know you want to play and you will get a time slot. In the evening, The N'Ukes are performing a full electric set inside, then we expect more strums into the early hours on the campsite.
Camping is not essential, you could come for the days only, but we hope the fun of this is getting a big bunch of uke players together. If you want to camp, call the pub direct on 07765 588748. Of course there are also B&B's about if you really dislike sleeping under canvas!
And if you are coming, would be great if you clicked 'attend' on our Facebook Events page so we have an idea on numbers. Many local players and clubs have already confirmed so it should be a lot of fun!
