Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival 2023: The Line-Up

Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival 2023: The Line-Up

We’re excited to announce that once again The Working Boat is an official venue and headline sponsor for the Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival this June. Whether you’re an avid sea shanty fan or just enjoy great food, Cornish beer and a buzzing atmosphere, you won’t want to be anywhere else during the weekend of 16th-18th June.

About The Sea Shanty Festival

Falmouth is steeped in nautical heritage and sea shanties are a significant part of Cornish culture and identity. Groups travel from all corners of the world to be a part of one of the biggest maritime concerts in Europe. Our pretty seaside town transforms into a hub of festivities and song, with everyone in high spirits.

Throughout the weekend The Working Boat will be serving a selection of delicious food. What’s more we’ll be joined by Penryn locals Pizza Pls throughout the weekend for a selection of wood fired Neapolitan classics. Simply head to their pizza van and place your order. Wash it all down with our selection of refreshing Cornish beers from the bar whilst you tap your toes along to the shanty singers.
