Grand Northern Ukulele Festival 2019 Competitions

For GNUF'19, we challenged you to write a jingle about one of the artists or the festival itself. We had some great entries, and World Of Ukes kindly provided a prize, a wonderful Origin Eden Concert & Case.

Here are the videos from the entries we had, and our winner was Christine Maguire who wins the ukulele. Double click the videos to view them full screen.

And the worthy winner was - Christine Maguire - who wins the ukulele and performed her song on the main stage, being congratulated by Sir Pete McCarty himself.

The Biscuit Factor Grand Final

On Sunday we ran the Biscuit Factor competition. Anyone who wanted to enter was asked four questions about biscuits, with three lucky people making it to the grand final on the main stage.

Here, the competitors mental agility was tested with two mind-bending tests - and myself and Mike Krabbers both composed music especially for GNUF19. Take a look at the video here.

The winner won some amazing biscuit mechandise, the respect of their peers, and a place in biscuit folklore.

We can't wait now for GNUF20 and are thinking up some more great competitions for you to take part in. Watch this space!

It looks like you had an incredible time while I was sleeping at home.
