The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival

14th-16th June 2024 

If you want to experience Cornish culture at it’s best then this is the festival for you. Falmouth is bursting with music, singing and sea fairing folk proudly adorned in flouncy shirts, leather puss in boots knee highs and of course – the pirate hat. Basically alot of real time Poldark’s and Demelza’s. What it’s really about is the Shanty singing. Groups come from all over Europe to sing. Some of the songs are sad enough to bring a tear and some are rude enough to bring our a blush but all of them are ‘proper’ entertaining. The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival: one of the largest maritime music festivals in europe, is held all over town. Venues are peppered through the streets – inside and out – with the main Stages on Custom House Quay, Events Square . Church St Car Park nr INDIdog and The Seven Stars Pub on The Moor. Come along, clink your tin jug and sing with a merry maiden. Our restaurant INDIdog is one of the 2022 sponsors of The Sea Shanty 2022 so we’ll be having lots of bands performing.
