About

With more than 40 bands spread over a multitude of venues, this promises to be a major event and one not to be missed.

Entry to all venues is free* although donations into the charity buckets will be appreciated. Both the RNLI and The Lions Club will benefit from your kind donations.

*entry fee to Grand Pier applies

There will be pirate crews invading Weston-super-Mare and there will be pirate crews invading the town!

Bands are travelling from near and far to play and sing at this festival, for free. The official website contains a list of the performers that were registered for the (now cancelled) festival in 2020. We hope that they will all be able to register for the 2021 festival, along with many more.


Organised by Weston's own shanty band, The Steepholmers, this event will be funded by sponsorship. If you wish to assist as a sponsor, please email nigel@wsmshantyfest.com and we will let you know how your business can help and what you can expect from us in the way of promotion.
