What's happening on Friday 13th February?

If you missed out on tickets to the Friday night dinner, there is still plenty to do on the first evening of the Festival in Katoomba ....

On Friday afternoon between 3:00pm and 4:30pm there is a 'meet and greet' at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre located a few meters away from the front door of the Carrington Hotel (Free Event). 

At 6:00pm there is a cocktail party in the Ballroom of the Carrington Hotel and everyone is invited. No need to drink but the bar will be open if you are inclined. The entertainment will be the Blue MUGs (Free Event).

Then at 7:00pm the Carrington Hotel Dining Room opens for those with tickets for the Festival Dinner, and everyone else is invited along to the Old City Bank Bar (Katoomba Street) for a strum along using the Ukulele Club Songbook (Free Event). 

If that isn't enough, the Family Hotel (Parke Street) will be open til late (Free Event). So everyone should be able to find something to do on Friday.

Calling ukulele performers

Planning is well underway for the 2015 Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival (our sixth!) to be held over the second weekend of February (13th, 14th and 15th).

Expressions of interest for performing at the Festival will open on July 1st and close on the 30th September 2014.

This year we will be using an online form to collect your details (see the link at the top of our Festival webpage). In 2014 we had 104 acts performing over the three days as you can imagine it really does help the committee having the correct details of your act before we make decisions about who will be invited and scheduling acts.

If you visit our Festival webpage you can also see our fabulous new poster; you may have noticed that the 2015 Festival falls on both Friday the 13th and Valentine’s Day. Perhaps that will inspire your application?

We do hope that you will consider applying to perform!
