Being COVID cautious but wanting to keep our beloved Banjo Jamboree on the radar, the 2021 committee is planning a one-day Jambo celebration on September 18th. Unfortunately camping on the oval will not be permitted, but very shortly our new website will be up and running which will contain details of lots of camping and accommodation options around the area. Look out for our new Facebook and Instagram pages as well. The Guildford Hotel will be hosting music on the Friday night and Sunday afternoon as well so it will be worthwhile staying around for the weekend if you can.

The Saturday’s activities will encapsulate many of the Jamboree’s features. A performance marquee and stalls will be set up on the oval, and other venues will host workshops, sessions, chalk-board concerts and a bush dance. Day tickets will need to be pre-booked online and will go on sale sometime in July. Sign up (see above) to be notified.

The Jamboree can’t run without volunteer assistance, so contact Lisa (details below) or watch out for the link to the Volunteer Registration form on our new website and other social media. Three hours on the day, or for set-up beforehand or pack-up afterwards will earn you a day ticket.

There are still some afternoon and evening concert spots available so if your group features a banjo and you are willing to volunteer your services for a half hour spot please contact Jeanette (details below) or look for the performer registration form on our new website and other social media.

Cheers all, from the Committee:
