About MUMF 2019

A Ukulele Festival with a difference.

The main venue is Plas Tan y Bwlch in picturesque North Wales. This former Country House still retains some of its original features including the panelled library. The house has several spaces for ‘break out’ sessions including the café patio terrace overlooking the Afon Dwyryd.

Throughout the Festival from Friday afternoon onwards, Pete Howlett will be building a koa concert ukulele which will be the prize for a lucky full ticket holder (name to be randomly drawn in the intermission of the concert).

On Saturday ukulele makers will display and sell their instruments and be available to answer questions. There will be workshops on ukulele building, playing techniques for beginners and experienced players, song writing, painting ukuleles and more.

Richard Durrant will compose a piece especially for the Festival and work with groups which will come together to perform as the grand finale of the Saturday evening concert.

The Venue

The main venue is Plas Tan y Bwlch, built as a country house but which is now used as the Snowdonia National Park Environmental Studies Centre.

Participating Makers

Building ukulele is both art and science. Meet the makers - whether you are a player, a buyer or a maker yourself - and get the inside story.
