The Working Boat’s guide to Sea Shanty Festival

Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival is finally back and we’re proud to share that we’re once again a key sponsor and venue of this local festival.

We’re so excited to welcome back an amazing line-up, as well as your lovely faces to our ‘mar-quay’ on the quay. Across the weekend we’ll be embracing a full schedule of singing, so we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to make sure you don’t miss a thing.

Discover The Working Boat’s guide to Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival below…


8AM – 10AM: Tuck into breakfast

Before you get into the swing of things, make sure you fill up with a hearty breakfast. Your day’s going to be packed full of toe tapping and brew sinking, so lining your stomach is a must. Pop down to one of our favourite cafes in Falmouth to grab yourself a coffee and some top-notch brekky. We suggest Good Vibes Café or Stone’s Bakery.


11AM – 5PM: Cool Off

After enjoying a delicious breakfast, start the day off right and head over to Greenbank beach. Lap up the waves at the shoreline or get adventurous and go for a dip. Paddle boarding is also highly encouraged. The weather is bound to be great… with lots of wishful thinking from us. After drying off, plan the rest of your day and who’s on your list to see by checking out the line-up.

Getting peckish? At The Working Boat we have just the thing. Delicious dirty fries piled with toppings (think crispy squid, hickory pulled pork, truffle and parmesan) to line your stomach before getting in on the action – you’ll definitely be needing the pick-me-up with all the tempting brews on offer for the rest of the evening.

5PM – 11PM: It’s starting

The festival has finally started. Dry off from the water by basking in the sunshine, grab a brew and then head to our mar-quay, ready to dance the night away. The line-up will have kicked off by now so ready yourself to burst into well-known shanties and don’t be afraid to have a jig. They’ll be plenty of live music over the whole weekend. Make sure to keep an eye out for the full Working Boat line up.


10pm– 11pm: And Repeat

It’s time to get some well-deserved rest, ready to repeat it all again the next day!
