The Sheringham Shantymen were launched in 1990 and in 2015 they celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a number of special concerts around Norfolk.
They continue to support the RNLI in a myriad of ways performing at lifeboat stations around the United Kingdom and Ireland. The Shantymen purchased a ‘D’ Class Lifeboat for the RNLI at Wicklow in 2007 named ‘The Sheringham Shantymen’. They have travelled widely throughout the UK; France, Germany, Virginia USA, Ireland & Holland. They have entertained at Maritime Festivals at Great Yarmouth, Bristol, Lincoln, Ipswich, Southampton, Portsmouth, the International Boat Show at Earl’s Court, ‘The Big Breakfast Show’, Children in Need, & ‘Blue Peter’ for which they have ‘the Badge’.
The Shantymen were invited to sing on the BBC’s the ‘One Show’, ‘Ade In Britain’ and the BBC’s ‘Country file’. Since 1990 the group has completed over 1,000 public performances, made three videos and recorded 7 CD’s, the most recent being March 2016. The Shantymen have attended the Falmouth festival since its inception and feel privileged to be invited to perform again in 2017.
