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, workshops, storytelling, inflatables, a kids craft tent, jam sessions, power-ballad yoga and a big-red-busking-bus!


After many fabulous years at Hoylake Rugby Club, the festival found a new home at The Junction, Rainford - a pub notorious for it's showcasing of live music. We loved it at Rainford and had 3 happy years there before moving the festival back to it's spiritual home in Hoylake for the upcoming 2024 festival. Luckily we will still be keeping our connection with The Junction Pub and holding a Spring Fling fundraiser on the late May bank Holiday weekend (25th-26th May).

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.  

Give us some time to recover (and dry off) from the amazingness that was Summer Strum 2023 and we'll be right back with you.
