One of the biggest maritime music festivals in Europe, the International Sea Shanty Festival will see Falmouth filled with music, singing and infused with a great community spirit. With free to attend shanty performances from over 60 shanty groups from across the UK, Brittany, Holland and Spain, Canada and Ireland.
Each group will perform their unique take on traditional sea shanty songs across 20 different venues including pubs, professional stages, street corners and churches across Falmouth town. The Shanty Festival runs alongside the Falmouth Classics Regatta which ties in nicely with the traditional maritime heritage theme of the weekend. The shore side in Falmouth during this time is buzzing with excitement for the summer season.
