It is with profound regret that we have reached the decision to cancel the Deni Uke Muster Festival this year. We're sure that you have heard words like unprecedented circumstances and uncertain times all too often, but this is the reality of our situation. The amount of volunteer time and effort required to set festival preparations in motion is considerable in the months leading up to the opening of ticket sales in September. This year we cannot plan effectively because we cannot know what the safe distancing requirements will be in November, nor whether the spaces available to us for workshops, performances and meals will support the numbers we need to make the festival viable.
Despite our disappointment, we remain enthusiastic about bringing you a fabulous festival next year. We have some terrific presenters who have been asked to put us in their diaries for 2021 (but we can't tell you who just yet). In the meantime, stay well and keep a-strumming and a-picking :).
