The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival was founded in 2003 with a mission is to keep the history of the sea alive; the days of sail by performing sea shanties, songs of the sea and Cornish songs. Spread across from Friday until Sunday, featuring pop-up bars and music stages throughout Falmouth town, bringing shanty groups from across the UK, Brittany, Holland, Spain, Canada and Ireland together in a celebration of all things nautical.
