St Ives Shanty Shout festival to welcome over 100 singers

The event brings artists from Cornwall and beyond together at various venues across town, including the Bier Huis Grand Cafe, Cafe Art, the Golden Lion and The Western Hotel.

Visitors can expect an array of tunes, recounting both traditional tales of sail and more modern stories of seashore life.

Kimber’s Men, renowned for their harmonies, are a must-see return act.

Entry to all venues is free of charge, with guests encouraged to donate generously to support the Friends of Edward Hain Centre.

Cornwall’s much-loved charity supporter, Betty, is also lending a hand.

The Shanty Shout, staged amid St Ives’ post-summer calm, promises a relaxed atmosphere where newcomers and seasoned shanty lovers can equally enjoy the deeply engaging performances.
