Newcastle Ukulele Fest update

After many months trying to get the local council to respond to me tried again this week. Guess what? Success.

Had a brilliant thought when sending my latest email – I copied in 2 local councillors to see if this changed my luck. And surprisingly(?) it did. Within hours had received an email from Cllr Elizabeth Shenton (Leader of the Council / Portfolio Holder – Policy, People and Partnerships),  and Matt Taylor (Newcastle-under-Lyme BID Manager).

Will be emailing them next week to see what we can do.

Ukulele Festival Newcastle Under Lyme 2017 anyone?

I’m thinking of starting a ukulele festival here in Newcastle Under Lyme, Staffordshire, sometime in 2017. Are you interested?

I’m looking for venues for gigs etc, groups who may want to perform, uke players who may want to pass on the expertise in ‘workshops’, etc..

I have approached Newcastle Under Lyme Council for their guidance and will report back.

But in the meantime, please let me have your comments.

Thanks
