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:           March 4,5,6 2022

Where:           Wangi Wangi RSL, suburb on Lake Macquarie

If you have a boat Swansea, Belmont, Blacksmiths, Caves beach, Gwandalan are easy access as there is a boat ramp opposite the club.
