2021 Artists now published!

Live today on our website, the confirmed Artists for our 2021 Festival, 8-10th October. Go to https://harwichshantyfestival.co.uk/category/2021-artists/ for the full list. We are very excited to have such a fabulous line up and there are a lot of treats in store over the weekend. We do have to apologise to all those we were unable to book. Covid has made running an event such as ours almost impossible and we can only keep our fingers crossed that the way ahead is clear!
