Uke players of all abilities have raved about the warmth and welcome of the local Norfolk Uke players; the fun of playing in locations across this beautiful Island; the delicious local wettles (food) and the opportunity to engage with the unique Norf’k culture. This Uke Festival is not to be missed!

NorfolkIslandTravelCentre SpingUkuleleFestival Donald

In the vast South Pacific Ocean, majestic Norfolk Pines stand alongside a truly special Polynesian blend of culture, language, music and history.

Uke players and musicians of all levels are invited to attend. The “cultural stew” of Aussie and Kiwi singers, join with Bounty Pitcairn descendants with their unique culture, Norf’k language songs and Island dancers.

Enjoy playing at scenic locations – perhaps a boat trip on Emily Bay and around the World Heritage listed Kingston historical area. Besides interesting workshops and Island rhythms, invitations will be given to perform at the Hospital, White Oaks Seniors, the local School, Churches and markets. Performers will also be invited to show their talents at a fabulous Ukulele Showcase night.
