Summer Shanties On The Pier

We were last able to hold our popular Summer Shanty sessions back in 2019, but we are pleased to announce they can now be reinstated. This is a chance to showcase your talents, whilst promoting the Shanty Festival and yourselves on what is hopefully a sunny summer afternoon. Singing starts at 12.00 and you can continue until late afternoon if you wish. Just one group per month. Groups – please do contact us via [email protected] if you would like to take part. We will furnish you with Shanty fliers and collecting pots and we hope you will have an enjoyable afternoon of singing in Historic Harwich town.
