The Summer Strum is a free ukulele festival, run by volunteers, which utilises the magical powers of this small but mighty instrument to promote inclusivity & create community wellbeing.

This weekend-long event hosts 3 stages full of ukulele bands from all over the world.

There's also camping, stalls, food, bars, songwriting workshops, storytelling, a play park, inflatables & zorbs, a kids craft tent, jam sessions, yoga, a big-red-busking-bus and a "Lost Hogmanay" party because we all missed out this New Year's Eve!

After 6 glorious years at Hoylake, the strum has moved location this year to The Junction, Rainford - a pub notorious for it's showcasing of live music. You're destined to leave this festival with new friends and a grin on your face.

All this for free AND to raise money for our charities Wirral Mind,  St John's Hospice and Liverpool Women's Hospital.

Wirral Hospice St John's provides FREE care for adult patients with life-limiting illnesses. They also support carers and loved ones.


We really want this event to go ahead and are planning for that to happen.

We will follow any government procedures required.

However the unpredictablity of our current situation may mean we have to cancel at last minute - you'll know as soon as we know!  

Because of this we won't be taking money for camping until much nearer the time (see our "camping page" for details).
