Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival

14th Jun 2024 – 16th Jun 2024
Falmouth has a proud and long history as a first safe port of call for deep-water sailing ships. It was here that sailors filled our waterside alehouses with their songs and it is here that those shanties and stories are kept alive to this day. If you listen very carefully as you walk along our seventeenth-century quays you can still hear them singing! www.falmouthseashanty.co.uk
