The Virtual Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival will take place live on Facebook and YouTube at 6pm Saturday 19th June. In respect of the current situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) and given that the Festival normally attracts in excess of 65,000, it would not be feasible to go ahead with the physical plans for this year. The virtual evening will be presented by Betty Stoggs, John Warren, and Richard Gates, Falmouth Town Manager, and the rousing event will take place in the Cornwall Channel Studios. The event will offer a selection of live and pre-recorded performances, alongside competitions, fabulous footage of Falmouth from 3Deep Aerial, and in true shanty tradition, will raise money for the Sea Shanty’s chosen charity, the RNLI and future festivals.
