Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival 2024
At our last event we welcomed crowds of shanty fans to our private quay to sing-along to the sounds of the sea in the sunshine. The Sea Shanty Festival welcomes over 65 international groups performing across 25 different venues in Falmouth, from intimate pub settings to open-air stages. Our harbour view stage will be returning, and we’ll be announcing our headline acts soon.
Expect thigh-slapping, beer-swashing, shanty-singing good times as venues across Falmouth host shanty bands from around the world. As proud sponsors of the festival, our beer tent will once again be one of the main stages for this incredibly popular Falmouth event.
Head down to our private quay, where you can watch 20 fantastic acts sing the songs of the sea whilst you admire the harbour views . Our team of chefs will also be preparing lots of delicious food throughout the weekend, to line your stomach before getting in on the action. 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!
Stay tuned for more information on who’ll be preforming over the weekend.
