We would like to thank everyone who contributed in any way towards the success of the Festival, be they artists, stewards, committee, venues, sponsors, audiences, Friends or supporters. We now start work on our 2020 Festival!

For a full listing of the 2019 artists, see the Artists page. 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!
