The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival takes places at various locations throughout the town, from pubs and bars to historic courtyards and quays. The festival is a FREE event, with shanty performances scheduled throughout the weekend at venues including Events Square, Custom House Quay, The Moor and Princess Pavilion. Visitors are encouraged to explore the town and its wealth of shops, restaurants, gardens and beaches, as well as the 23 official festival venues.
Alongside the variety of free performances, we are delighted to host a special one-off Falmouth Packet Gala Concert at Princess Pavilion. The concert brings four of our headline groups together in Falmouth's top live music venue. Tickets are just £10, and can be bought from our website, from the Princess Pavilion Box Office, and from the Cornish Store in the months leading up to the festival.
The festival program contains all sorts of useful information from maps to schedules, and will be on sale both online and in the town in the weeks leading to the festival.
