South Lakes Music Partnership was formed in 2002 by a group of local enthusiasts with the aim of bringing the best of live folk, blues and acoustic music to Ulverston in the beautiful South Lakes of England. The name was changed to Ulverston Live Music in 2013 ... We have a policy of supporting local new talent. This is in the form of a 15 minute slot at the beginning of the evening and gives an opportunity for up and coming acts to perform in front of an attentive and receptive audience. We vet all potential support acts and in particular support local folk music initiatives for young people. They tend to be of a high standard and some have gone on to compete in the Radio 2 Young Folk Musician of the Year Awards.‘

‘The Choir includes members of all denominations and politics, but we have at least one thing in common and that is a love of singing. Anyone who shares this love is invited to come along to a rehearsal without any obligation, or to contact any member of the choir. You do not need an exceptional voice but just the ability to sing in tune and blend with the choir. It is not necessary to be able to read music. Help will be on hand if you require it in order to learn your line of music and enjoy this most rewarding pastime.’

‘Prizewinning ladies choir ... started in September 1941 as part of Ulverston Townswomen's Guild. Just a couple of months after the neighbouring town of Barrow was bombed, a group got together to start a ladies' choir! It may be noted that our friends, Barrow Male Voice Choir actually suspended choir activities from 1941 till 1945, but then their members will have been called up into the armed forces ... It’s good to know that our predecessors were at least as determined as we are!’
