Artists for 2022

Our full list of Artists for this year’s HISF has now been published on our website: https://harwichshantyfestival.co.uk/category/artists-2022/. Clearly we are very excited at the excellent line up which promises another superb Festival. Do take a look.


We are pleased to announce that the Grassroots Charity has awarded us a grant of just under £1,000 for this year’s Festival. This will enable us to purchase a number of items for the Festival and we are very grateful for their support.


In addition to our new 2022 T-Shirts, we now have some more promotional merchandise for sale, including Shanty Mugs and the 2023 Calendar, featuring some of the photos that were sent in for our Calendar Competition. Visit https://harwichshantyfestival.co.uk/merchandise/ for details of all merchandise which is available to buy online or directly from the Ha’Penny Pier Visitor Centre. Winners of the Calendar competition will be receiving their copies soon.


Our new fliers and posters are now ready for distribution, see below. If you are able to help in any way with this distribution please let us know. We can post out batches of fliers or they can be collected locally. Otherwise you can download a PDF of the Poster to print for your front window/car/office etc

Hanover Inn

Many of you will have already heard that the Hanover Inn, one of our very popular venues at the Festival, suffered a devastating fire on Tuesday 14th June and together with two adjoining period properties has sustained significant damage. Fortunately no one was injured, but the damage to the properties is substantial. Our thoughts are with those who have lost their homes, business or jobs. Obviously the Hanover will not be part of our Festival this year, but we look forward to welcoming them back as soon as possible.

Motorhome Site

We are pleased to announce that we have again secured permission to use Harwich Green for use by caravans and motorhomes this year. Details of how to reserve your place will go live on our website at the beginning of July.
