SATURDAY 30th MAY 2020  WINCHESTER RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB North Walls Park, Hillier Way, Winchester SO23 7SU info@winchesterukefest.co.uk
Nominated as Best Ukulele Festival
Press Release Contrary   to   our   previous   announcement,   we   have   now   decided   that   the   Winchester   Ukulele   Festival will take a break in 2019 and have a fallow year. The   budgetary   constraints   imposed   on   a   small   festival   such   as   ours   add   to   the   pressures   and   although we   have   always   sold   out   and   broken   even,   in   2019   our   partners,   the   Rugby   Club,   have   decided   not   to hold   a   summer   ball.   This   means   we   are   unable   to   share   some   of   the   costs   as   we   have   done   in   the   past, so it seems prudent to take a year off and just catch our breath. Please   accept   our   apologies   as   we   are   aware   that   this   will   be   disappointing   for   many   of   you   who   look forward   to   the   unique   style   and   atmosphere   of   the   festival.   We   hope   you   can   understand   the   reasons behind our decision. The   Winchester   Ukulele   Festival   will   continue   to   run   as   an   organisation   and   we   intend   to   return   in 2020.  In the meantime, we are planning a number of smaller gigs and workshops spread over 2019. Many thanks for your support. The Festival Team P.S. All things being equal we’ll see you on Saturday 30th May 2020 if not before.
