Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How do I get to Uke-a-Bay?

A: Firstly, by bookmarking this site and subscribing to our mailing list. When the 2017 dates are announced, you’ll be among the first to know. We’ll also tell you exactly how to get here by road, rail or shanks’ pony (if you’re really local).


Q: What about accommodation?

A: We’ve got a page for that. Obviously, we haven’t quality checked every hotel, guest house and campsite in the area but we’ve listed a few that people have recommended to us. Click here.


Q: Can anyone play at Uke-a-Bay?

A: The short answer: Yes. The long answer: We try to make that possible . Saturday’s events always include busking pitches open to all comers. With a bit more warning, we’ll try to schedule some time at St Pauls or The Station for visiting bands. We suggest you get in touch and discuss what we can do for each other.


Q: How much do tickets cost?

A: Uke-a-Bay is free. The Saturday night event in Theatr Colwyn is ticketed but even they’re free (subject to availability). To request tickets for that event (featuring Woteva, Fagin’s boys, Michael Adcock, and Gaudy Orde) click here.


Q: Is there anything else to do in Colwyn Bay?

A: There’s loads to do. Take a look at Colwyn Bay’s website. Also, during the Uke-a-Bay weekend, there’s an open day at Colwyn Garden Railway.


Q: Is Uke-a-Bay really organized by a plush lemur called Erik?

A: Of course not! That would be silly. Uke-a-bay is organized by a whole team of people who work for Erik.
