Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival performances

Hands up who’s looking forward to Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival? We can’t wait! As well as being a major sponsor of the Falmouth Classics which takes place on the same weekend, we’ll also be embracing the singing to support the RNLI.

One of the biggest maritime music concerts anywhere in Europe, this festival is one not to be missed. Groups travel from far and wide including Netherlands, France, USA and right across the UK, for an event that promises to fill the town with music and infuse Falmouth with a great community spirit.

The Working Boat is an official venue this year and will host 17 performances on the 16th-18th June. We will also be serving  delicious morsels from our barbeque as well as fish and chips on Friday and Saturday, and on Sunday we’ll serve roasts and a condensed menu from midday until 9pm.
