Excerpt from their home page follows:
"Welcome to one of the biggest maritime music festivals in Europe! The town will play host to hundreds of hours of free to attend shanty performances, with only our special Gala Concert ticketed, with proceeds going to the RNLI. Falmouth will be filled with music, singing and infused with a great community spirit. The Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival is held at multiple venues throughout the town with main stages being Seasalt Stage on Custom House Quay, Skinners Stage on Events Square (Discovery Quay) and Seven Stars Stage on The Moor. 2015 will be the biggest year yet with 53 Shanty groups and 21 venues.
2014's Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival saw the biggest crowds yet with over 25,000 visitors throughout the town during the weekend! We had sunny main stages, outdoor shanty stops, traditional venues and the first ever Gala Concert all in aid of the RNLI."
