GNUF is a festival famous for its innovation and good fun. In 2019, you’ll find the familiar opportunities to see great performances and take part in loads of jams, singalongs, conversations and more. We are bringing some of the world’s top ukulele artists to town including much-loved favourites and some acts never before seen at a UK ukulele festival. We have exciting activities planned for you to experience new things, take part and make connections with others.
True originals, inspiring performers and genuinely new experiences
What to Expect
The Festival in a Nutshell:
New for this year, we introduce masterclasses as well as activities which allow you to take part in experiences and workshops covering all things ukulele and other related things like songwriting, photography, performance and more. You’ll also find meet-and-greets which allow you to meet people with similar interests and tastes and some pop-up activities designed to foster great fun, musical connections and more.
