Want me to mention an annual, irregular or one-off British ukulele event I've missed? Get in touch via the Contact Jon page and I'll rectify my error ASAP.
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain:
September & December
Their naming dispute happily behind them, the legendary Ukes are busy as ever. You can still see them in various corners of England in what's left of 2015, with venues ranging from Harrogate to the Isle of Wight. Still crazy after all these years.
Grand Northern Ukulele Festival:
27-29th May 2016, Huddersfield
A really interesting lineup announced so far for the annual Yorkshire get-together, with The Quiet American and Danielle Ate The Sandwich among the acts making the trip from overseas.
Winchester Ukulele Festival:
Saturday 4th June 2016
A lineup of mostly British acts will take the stage at the first ever Winchester Ukulele Festival in 2016. Phil Doleman leads the charge.
Great Southern Ukulele Festival:
15th October 2016
Details TBA. Here's my review of the 2015 event.
