SPRUKE — Brisbanes’s Ukulele Festival is on 13-15 September 2019. We have a new venue for 2019 at Sunnybank Perf0rming Arts Complex (SunPAC) and the adjoining Sunnybank Sports and Community Club, which gives us some exciting new options for performing stages and workshop venues.

This year SPRUKE features four concerts. A Sprooky Cabaret is on the night of Friday 13th to open the festival. Saturday features an afternoon Kidsspruke concert, and a Saturday night concert. Sunday the festival wraps up with the popular, all in, jamming Festival Finale.

The theme of SPRUKE Festival is Uke’n Make Music. We’re looking for performances and workshops that inspire, as well as involve our audience in music making!  Is there something you teach, or your group does, that will enhance our festival goers playing, performance or experience with the ukulele? Make sure you let us know!

Some performing groups will be invited to lead the audience in jams. If you are great at this, make sure you tell us.
