Thanks to all of you for your participation and camaraderie. You are why we run the festival. We thought the talent displayed this year was exceptional - it is awesome to see the development in all the groups performing.
We welcome your feedback about our festival.
We love the compliments but would also like to hear constructive suggestions to help us to continue to develop and grow.
We also have an issue for 2018 : Waitangi Day is on Tuesday and we cannot factor it in as a travel day. We have to be careful that we maintain a format that reflects our "grassroots" philosophy - lots of opportunities to get your hands on your ukulele.
We need to know if running the festival in it's present format (Friday evening, Saturday,Sunday,Monday morning ) would cause any undue hardship and stop you from attending. We will analyse your responses and base our decisions on that.
Once again - thanks a million to everyone: you as participants, the local community for all their work, the sound technicians, lighting man, our generous sponsors, Lauder Pub , The Rural Women for the great food and all our workshop presenters.
Please fill out the form below with your comments.
Cheers and good uking!
