Music In Ulpha (MiU), is a non-profit making organisation and has been running at the Browfoot Room, Ulpha in the Duddon Valley since 2011

Our aim is to provide memorable musical experiences by staging high quality, intimate, exclusive music events at affordable rates.

MiU promotes live music (principally folk, acoustic, blues and roots).

MiU presents top artists and many people can't believe how we manage to attract such prestigious acts.

MiU runs its own bar, with local real ales and quality wines, and provides a comfortable “cabaret style” setup.

The concerts provide the local community and surrounding areas with an opportunity, at regular intervals, to get together in a much more “up close and personal” way than a large concert scenario.

Below is the lineup that we have planned for the next year and beyond. Please click on the image to get further details and to purchase tickets.
