    Any chance of asking Flash Jack to the festival? Or are they too far away?

  2. Pam Fitzgerald

    We have asked them previously but they declined

  3. Steve Barnett

    My wife and I enjoyed some of the ticketed events last year and only just got in! Is there a link showing this year’s events or am I too early?

    Can you send me a detailed program for this year’s festival this coming weekend 13-15th Oct please?
    Are there any tickets left for more formal concerts?
    Can you recommend somewhere to stay more cheaply, for the Saturday night or do you think everywhere is full? What about outside Harwich nearby on a bus/ train route?

    Hi Martin, our social media accounts have the latest information. Most of our events are free but the programme is £3 from our online store ( https://store.harwichshantyfestival.co.uk ) and this contains all the event and supporting information. We believe that all accomodation is taken but you can email info@harwichshantyfestival.co.uk for a list of any remaining B&B places in Harwich. Our trains serve Ipswich & Colchester (change at Manningtree) so beds may be available. The last train out of Harwich on Saturday night is at 2326. As for tickets, these close for online sale at 1800 today and will be available from Ha’Penny Pier from tomorrow morning whilst spaces last. https://harwichshantyfestival.co.uk/tickets/
