Think Locally

GNUF & Huddersfield

In 2014 we took our festival to Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, and fell in love with the town. Over the years we have worked closely with the council and local businesses and have always been made to feel very welcome.  We are proud to call Huddersfield our home and are keen to grow our base in the local community. Our intention is to continue our work, providing new opportunities for local and international communities to engage with high-quality music and the arts, by bringing artists, musicians, makers and similar creative folk from all over the world to the festival.

We don’t just bring people to town for a one-off event, however.  We work closely with individuals and businesses in the area and across the North throughout the year.

We continue to work with artist Tony Wade of Edgeland Arts (formerly Faceless Arts) and others to put on an expanding range of community-based arts and music events in the period leading up to the festival (such as the flash mobssplash mobsplatform performances and pop-up events we put on in 2014).

From the world over

Make connections

The purpose of the festival is bringing together people from across the country and around the world is not simply to create a weekend of world-class arts, and entertainment featuring the ukulele. We aim to create a legacy so that any new-found interests in music or the arts more generally might continue to flourish long after the festival has ended.

In support of this, we bring artists with whom we have collaborated, to clubs and groups around the country for workshops, performances and tuition.

We are also keen to hear your thoughts as you read this page, we love to reach out to new groups of people. Our communities progress from new ideas and interactions, and we want to incorporate those into our festival, to create something truly extraordinay.
