I've not posted a great deal about N'Ukefest on Got A Ukulele, to keep some distance between band and blog, but there really isn't long to go now, and folks are getting excited!
N'Ukefest is a completely charitable ukulele gathering in the heart of Cheshire, UK which takes place between 16 and 18 May. Best of all it is FREE to attend and we have some marvellous acts on board.
On the Saturday evening (17th) the festival headliners include Ooty And The Cloud from Chester, Dead Mans Uke from Sheffield, Krabbers from Farnborough, Phil Doleman from Derby, Chonkinfeckle from Wigan and The N'Ukes.
All day on Saturday and Sunday we have an outdoor open mic stage which is hosting acts from all over the UK - bringing the total number of performers up to nearly 40 acts.
Most importantly though, we are collecting all weekend for two great charity causes - Macmillan Cancer Support and the local charity - Wingate Centre who offer recreational facilities for children and young adults with learning and physical disabilities.
Supporting that charitable cause is a fabulous raffle, hosted by Mary Agnes Krell, director of the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival in which hundreds of pounds worth of gear can be won (including several ukuleles provided by kind donation!).
Anyway - as I said - not long to go. You will find all the information you need at http://www.nukefest.com and we very much hope to see you there!
