Well it has been quite a challenging 12 months. If you haven’t noticed the changes happening around you I can only assume you have been playing your ukulele far too much and I never thought that I would ever say such a thing.
Hills 2021 is being planned as an online event. Workshops and Concerts to be live streamed on the Saturday the 15th of May and Community Group Video performances live streamed on Sunday the 16th of May. As always, we are striving to be bigger and better. One thing that has become clear is that the world is a lot smaller as an online community. As such, there will be an international contingent represented by Community Groups and Schools from around the world performing. That’s why the Groups get a whole day to themselves on Sunday.
Now, while we are planning for an online festival, if sometime in April, we discover that most of us are vaccinated and we have COVID-19 well and truly under control, we are open to the possibility of a live event.
Now this is a good news bad news scenario. The planned online festival is a free event and funded by the festival raffle. A live workshop and concert day would be a ticketed event. What can I say? Live events cost more to run.
I hope you are enjoying (or at least surviving) where this adventure has led us and I hope you keep playing the ukulele.
We hope you join us online at the Hills Ukulele Festival Facebook Live page.
