We had a GREAT TIME in 2014

(just look at all the pictures, videos, stories, news coverage & more on our 2014 Festival Page).

We are taking a tiny break and then getting stuck right back in to planning for 2015. THANK YOU each and every person who came, helped, played and did other things.


We set out to be a major event in the European ukulele calendar.  We make it our goal to bring the biggest, best, silliest & just plain friendly artists from around the world, to you. There are big concerts and musical jams, large and small at GNUF. There are stalls and sing-alongs and open-mics and crafts workshops and always loads of surprises. There are new people to meet and old friends to catch up with.  There are opportunities for youth and adults and the young-at-heart to participate in the arts and music. Grand Northern Ukulele Festival is built by a small group of ukulele players passionate about the music (and who happen to like supporting artists and doing nice things for their communities).
