Preparations for the 2020 Harwich International Shanty Festival are well underway with a great selection of overseas and UK artists appearing in Harwich this October. Our 2020 Festival coincides with the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower sailing, a ship that was built in Harwich and was mastered by a Harwich man.
Our artist listing is now live but not complete – check in a few weeks to see who’s been added!
We also have shanty events happening all year round
If you wish to contact the festival organisers please note that we do not have an office and that all of the management and staff are volunteers with multiple responsibilities. We therefore may take a while to respond but we do promise to do our best!
