The Summer Strum is a free ukulele festival, run by volunteers, which utilises the magical powers of this small but mighty instrument to combat loneliness, 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 and a big-red-busking-bus.
After many fabulous years at Hoylake, the festival has found a new home at The Junction, Rainford - a pub notorious for it's showcasing of live music.
Nobody leaves this festival without new friends and a grin on their face.
All this for free AND to raise money for our charities Wirral Mind and Liverpool Women's Hospital Neo Natal Unit.
