27th May Clevedon pier 150th celebrations

Full range of entertainment with shanties starting at 2pm


Another busy year which has included returns to our favourite venues:

  • Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival

  • Exmouth Festival

  • Clovelly Lobster & Crab Festival

  • Blackmore Farm

There were several new events for us last year including North and Mid Somerset Shows and the inaugural Teignmouth Festival; great venues all.   Hats off to the inaugural Teignmouth Festival; it seemed as though this event had been going for years!  Looking forward to return trip in 2019.

The RNLI and the Childrens Hospice South West have remained our primary charities for 2018 and we hope to continue our support for our wonderful historic piers in Clevedon and Weston-Super-Mare.
