The Grand Northern Ukulele Festival 2019

The seventh GNUF, and our third. This is the festival that last year received the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, as well as other awards. Probably the best known festival in the UK. Certainly the biggest with four stages, so many artists, masses of jamming possibilities and other things going on over the whole weekend.

The schedule is yet to appear, but already confirmed are Jake Shimabukuro, Heidi Swedburg & Daniel Ward, Sarah Maisel & Craig Chee, Petey Mack, Peter Luongo, The Hedge Inspectors, League Of Ukulele Gentlenem and many, many more.

We have a song writing competition, kindly sponsored by World Of Ukes. Watch the video here for an introduction and to see the prize, but the basic criteria is this :

What's happening this year...

There will be another fun competition on the Sunday.

In addition to the songwriting competition, we will be running 'The Biscuit Factor'. Just look out for us with Coustie the cat, and get involved.

Testing your knowledge of biscuits, and if you get throught the qualifying stages, your dexterity and problem solving capabilities.

Expect fun. And biscuits.

The main GNUF page is here, we will add more things to this page in the coming weeks, so keep an eye for more fun opportunities.

The winner of the song competition was Christine Maguire, with a great song about Petey Mack. There is a new page with all of the videos.


Lets see how many of you can get a picture with Coustie this year!
