First workshop announcement: learn from the best!


The Cairns Ukulele Festival is excited and proud to host some of the most popular and respected ukulele instructors in the world! These workshops are set to help you improve your playing and knowledge and help you reach new heights! Due to popular demand, we’ve increased the number of workshops significantly this year. Workshops are capped and always book out so, so once the tickets go on sale mid-March, make sure you book your space as soon as possible! Workshop prices range from $10 to $30.

The workshops will take place Friday 6 July (afternoon) and Saturday 7 July 2012 (morning). Workshop announcements follow artist announcements, so more workshops and session times will be announced the next few months!
