WHAT WE DO
The Barnacle Buoys is a group of a cappella sea shanty singers based in North Somerset. We exist to enjoy our craft, entertain our audiences and raise money for our chosen charities. Our principle charities have been the Childrens Hospice South West and the RNLI. These organisations rely upon donations in order to provide their invaluable services to those in real and often desperate need.
We give our time freely and in return have a great time; we hope our audiences do too!
In recent years we have consistently completed over 40 performances; this has been a significant contribution to the organisations we support. So, if you might be considering a community, social, corporate or charitable event which may need a bit of swagger and song, why not consider a shanty or two to help you and, in turn, help others at the same time?
Charities and events that have been supported by the Buoys have included:
Children’s Hospice South West
