Strum on down to the Parbold Ukulele Festival this August

On the first weekend in August, Parbulele is set to return, creating a musical community event not to be missed.

In it’s third year now, it promises to be even bigger and better, with new groups, such as the Parbold Junior Strummers (PJ’s) joining the festival for the first time.

Parbulele is set to take over venues all over Parbold, such as the the village Hall, the Wayfarer and other local beer gardens, immersing the village in this fun festival for the whole weekend.

From 11am – 5pm on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th August, Ukulele bands will be strumming away in local beer gardens, so why not head down to the Railway, Windmill, Stocks or Wayfarer for a bite to eat and also feast your ears on the excellent entertainment.

The main stage will be set up by the canal side and will feature open mic performances. A variety of stalls, food and drink stands and activities for children, such as a bouncy castle, can also be found here too.

Saturday and Sunday evenings will see two concerts being held at the village hall, with a BBQ and beer to help the evening swing into action.

And if that’s not enough excitement, there will be a raffle held, with the top prize being a Ukulele worth £150. Tickets will be on sale at £2 each throughout the festival.

Parbulele will run from 3rd – 5th August 2018. Tickets are £3 for a day or £5 for the whole weekend. Concerts are £15 and workshops for adults are £10 or £5 for children. Tickets will be available on the day or can be bought from the organiser, Gary Smith.  Want to know more or buy a ticket? Then contact Gary Smith on 07495 332770  or email him
