We're barely two months away from the 2017 Harwich Shanty Festival and the excitement is growing! We have just confirmed artists from the USA (Bob Walser) and from Russia (Men Overboard), check the website for details on all the artists. Bob will be running workshops as well as performing and brings a wealth of experience with him.
It is now confirmed that there will be a shuttle bus running between Harwich and outlying areas of Dovercourt for the duration of the festival. The bus timetable will be in programme due out mid August. Also confirmed there will be a car park available in central Harwich over the festival weekend. Details in programme.
Our Green Token scheme with the Co-Op (thanks Diane!) raised £300 and we have another Green Token scheme running at the Dovercourt Asda Store, if you shop there please remember the tokens!
We had two recent fundraising events in Harwich, a Shanty Pub Crawl involving three of the local Shanty Groups and a Barn Dance. Together these raised £500! Many thanks to everyone involved, including the Skulking Loafers, Naze Shanty, Harwich Shanty and the Golden Rivets
The festival is being featured in the October edition of Sailing Today magazine (out beginning of Sept) and may appear in other publications!
