One of the biggest maritime music festivals in Europe, the Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival returns again for 2023, following a massively successful rendition of the annual festival in June 2022 (which itself returned after only taking place virtually in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19).
Although the dates for 2023 are yet to be confirmed, the festival usually takes place in the middle of June.
Sea shanties are songs sung by sailors, for merriment. They often tell stories of endeavours at sea and tend to be accompanied but a drink or two of rum! Sea Shanty choirs from all over Europe will sing their songs.
