Bristol Sea Shanty Festival

October 10 2021

12pm - 6pm


Brunel’s SS Great Britain is delighted to be a venue for the inaugural Bristol Sea Shanty Festival, along with our friends at Underfall Yard. Ten shanty bands will perform on two main stages – one on Brunel Square outside Brunel’s SS Great Britain and the other at Underfall Yard.

Follow the festival’s Facebook Page to keep up to date on performance times and event details.

Enjoy live sets on both stages from 12 noon to 6pm. Both locations have free public access with plenty of outdoor space for audiences to spread out. Cafes and pop-up bars will be available with sales benefiting the Underfall Yard Trust and SS Great Britain Trust.

There will also be fringe performances in the historic dockyard and aboard the SS Great Britain. Some performances from the festival will be live-streamed.

The Bristol Sea Shanty Festival is organised by High and Dry with venue support from Brunel’s SS Great Britain and the Underfall Yard.
