The Central Coast Ukulele Festival 2021

Aloha to all!

The Central Coast Ukulele club are in our tenth year and we would like to celebrate our 9th Festival (would have been 10th however due to COVID-19 we had to cancel last year) with you.

We are planning a fun and slightly different Central Coast Ukulele Festival this year adding a new venue who have kindly come forward and offered their entire club for our special event. More to come shortly.

The advice to me is they are slowly returning to normal and complying strictly to social distancing and hygiene. The Central Coast Ukulele Festival is welcome to go ahead as it has always been a popular community event with live music, workshops an all-in ukulele jam and sing-along, live ukulele groups and acts, raffles, merchandise tables, markets stalls and more.

Planning is in line with COVID restrictions and regulations.   

When:            October  1-3 (October long weekend.)

Where:           Wangi Wangi RSL, suburb on Lake Macquarie                        

275 Watkins Rd, Wangi Wangi NSW

Accommodation is available at Wangi Wangi and surrounding areas of Lake Macquarie. There is brilliant camping, van parks and grounds in the area and around the Central Coast. If you have a boat Swansea, Belmont, Blacksmiths, Caves beach, Gwandalan are easy access as there is a boat ramp opposite the club.

Details of program will be advised once all applications are final.

Wangi Wangi is 30 minutes from Wyong, 1.5 hours from Sydney, 36 minutes from Ourimbah, 50 minutes from The Entrance, 50 minutes from Newcastle.

Wangi Wangi (/ˈwɒndʒi wɒndʒi/) is a suburb of the City of Lake Macquarie in New South WalesAustralia, which forms a peninsula jutting eastwards into Lake Macquarie. Wangi Wangi is a well-known holiday spot, that was frequented in the early days by families from the coalfields. It is known for its beautiful views, bushwalking, and fishing spots.

Wangi is also well known as the former home of artist William Dobell. Dobell’s 1948 Wynne Prize winning landscape Storm Approaching Wangi depicts the locality.

Along with event attendees all over the world, we’ve been watching the COVID-19 pandemic as it evolves. We recognize how stressful this particular situation is, and we share your concerns.

We stand with all of you and the broader event community during a time when our industry is being deeply affected. We have faith and are putting in place all safeguards to have a great festival.

Looking forward to seeing you and your music

Applications will be available shortly

With so many uncertainties and restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with much regret and sadness that we, the Central Coast Ukulele Club along with The Diggers Club have come to the difficult decision to cancel this year’s 9th Central Coast Ukulele Festival 2020.

The decision was made with everyone’s health, safety and well-being in mind, along with the current NSW Government covid-19 restrictions

Thank you to everyone who applied to perform and a huge thank you to our amazing headline acts for your understanding.

We were living with optimism and hoped that the world would get better however the decision was sent to us yesterday to postpone our festival until next year.

Yes, the good news is same place and time next year. This will be bigger and better! So, the program will remain the same with more inclusions and more acts just 12 months forward.

Stay safe, healthy and keep strumming.

 

Love to you all.

Liz and The Central Coast Ukulele Club
