Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Gloucester Shanty Festival returns to the city from Saturday 4 to Sunday 5 June 2022 – and it’s all free of charge too.
A rambunctious 13 acts will be entertaining city crowds, including Friggitt, Blackthorn Buskers, Kings Shilling Shanty, Gloucester Diamonds, Shanty Time, ReBil, Spinnaker Shanty, High and Dry Shanty, Debra Hannis, Brian of Holcombe, Shropshire Boatmen, Rod Penlington, LocTup and The Steepholmers.
Organiser Jojo Roche said: ‘We are looking forward to bringing the Shanty Festival back this year and for the streets and venues to be alive with merriment and madness!
‘It’s great to add the event into the city’s calendar once again and welcome back crews from all over the country for a weekend of maritime fun.’
Visitors soaking up the shanty singalongs will also be able to see a host of traditional boats at the Gloucester Tall Ships Festival which is running at the same time.
Plus, they’ll also be able to join in with the dressing-up jaunt that is the Gloucester Pirate Walk on Saturday 4 June 2022 at 4pm from Café Rene which will be raising money for the Severn Area Rescue Association.
