Summer Strum is a not-for-profit, self funded event organised and run by a team of fantastic volunteers! The cost of staging the festival is met by sponsorship, grants, fundraising by and the regions' ukulele community and the support of various businesses - see Friends of the Festival.
It is because of this support that the 'Strum' is able to remain a free to enter event.
