Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival. Friday 16th June - Sunday 18th June 2017
This year’s Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival saw the biggest crowds yet with an estimated 40,000 visitors throughout the town during the weekend! We had sunny (and drizzly!) main stages, outdoor shanty stops, traditional venues and the sell-out Falmouth Packet Gala Concert all in aid of the RNLI. It was an enormous success and we want to say a big thank you to Skinners Brewery and Seasalt Clothing for all their support. We'd also like to thank all volunteers and committee members for all their efforts and the hard work they put in to make the event such a success!
Welcome to one of the biggest maritime music festivals in Europe! The town will play host to hundreds of hours of free to attend shanty performances, with only our special Gala Concert ticketed, and proceeds going to the RNLI. Falmouth will be filled with music, singing and infused with a great community spirit. The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival is held at multiple venues throughout the town with main stages being Seasalt Stage on Custom House Quay, Skinners Stage on Events Square (Discovery Quay) and Seven Stars Stage on The Moor.
