We had a very successful Festival in June 2023. The weather was kind and the entertainment was top class. Thanks to all the participants and visitors who supported us and helped in raising much welcomed funds for the RNLI.
We will embark on our next International Sea Shanty Festival from 21st -23rd June 2024 – join in the fun, meet old and new friends, and enjoy the singing with Shanty Groups from home and abroad.
