G’day and welcome

Facebook Scam Alert

There are links appearing on Facebook offering a stream to Banjo Jamboree events with the following text:

“Guildford Banjo Jamboree 2018 [Live] Stream 2018 | Full Show!!”
and
“Guildford Banjo Jamboree 2018 Live#2018 Full Streaming!”

with links to a .cf domain. They appear as below in Facebook.

.cf refers to the Central African Republic. Festival management has no association with these links. These are scams and ask you to log in.  DO NOT follow these links. They purport to offer a stream to begin on 25th September.

Banjo Jamboree does not have a Facebook page, nor does it have a streaming service, ‘live’ or otherwise. We only have this website: http://banjojamboree.org.

We thank Patrick Jones for allowing us to use his video (above) that so perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the Guildford Banjo Jamboree.

The 15th Guildford Banjo Jamboree is set for the weekend of 21-23 September 2018.

Jeanette Gillespie has retired as Chair of the Jambo Organising Committee. Reflecting her massive contribution over the years, it has taken two people to replace her – our new coordinators are Liz Monty and Peter Mitchell.

Jeanette will continue to coordinate the program, performers and MCs, and for the first time in seven years will hopefully have time to fully enjoy the jamboree.

Some things haven’t changed, with Gael Shannon still the smiling face of our volunteers. Be sure to register if you would like to join her merry band of volunteers.

If you have never been to a Jamboree and would like to find out more – welcome, and please click on the page links to navigate around the site.

The Organising Committee has voted to make some changes for 2018:

  • This year we are introducing a camping fee of $15 per vehicle for the John Powell Reserve Oval and the River Reserve, regardless of length of stay. Camping is free for ticket holders at the Big Tree Reserve but restricted to tents only. Further information is provided in the Accommodation tab.
  • Ticket prices remain the same as last year. Please note individual workshop tickets are no longer available.
  • Camping is not permitted on Tuesday or Wednesday night. If you wish to arrive on Wednesday in order to volunteer for set up on Thursday please let us know and we will find a spot on private property for you.

Latest news

no portable toilets at river reserve camping spot

Unfortunately, due to more stringently enforced regulations, we can no longer install portable toilets down at the River Reserve camping area (portable toilets must be at least 100 metres from a river). Patrons with their own facilities are welcome to camp there, and others may use the facilities at the Big Tree Park and the oval, but it is a little walk away! Many apologies for the late notice for this.

Dogs / EFTPOS / Mobile Phones

1. Please remember that dogs must be restrained on a lead at all times in any camping or town area, and that no dogs are permitted in any venue including the hotel.
2. EFTPOS cash-out facilities are limited in Guildford, so make sure you bring enough cash with you for food, drinks, etc. There will be a card facility available at the ticket office at Reception.
3. Telstra mobile phone connection is the only reliable carrier in Guildford

From the Programmer

Big thanks to all those performers and workshop presenters who are giving their time and talents to entertain and enlighten us over the weekend. Details of performers/workshop presenters and program are now up on this site. It’s going to be a great weekend! Unfortunately the Devil Goat Family String Band have had to pull out of the Sunday concert due to unforeseen circumstances. A replacement will be announced soon.
