Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival performances

The annual Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival is fast approaching and we are excited as ever! Music is at the heart of Cornish culture and we can’t wait to celebrate this summer. One of the biggest maritime music concerts anywhere in Europe, this festival is a must-see. Groups travel from far and wide, for an event that promises to fill the town with music and infuse Falmouth with a great community spirit.

The Working Boat pub is an official venue which means you can watch 16 fantastic acts sing the songs of the sea whilst you admire the harbour views . We will also be preparing delicious homemade pizzas, refreshing Buddha bowl salads and slow-cooked potato bake. We’ll also be serving a range of Cornish ales, beers and other beverages. So get ready to sink a few pints and start toe-tapping to the shanties!
