  • RNLI
  • Rowcroft Hospice
  • Teign heritage Centre
  • Alice Cross Centre

The Teign Shanty Festival will be taking place on Saturday 28th – Sunday 29th September 2019.

Be sure to support this amazing festival and community event.

What are shanties?

Shanties were songs sung by workers throughout their working day, more notably with miners, sailors and those that worked on the railway lines. Shanties have become more popular over the years due to the recent film release “Fisherman’s Friends”. A shanty group from North Cornwall, in Port Isaac’s.

Timetable of Events

The shanty crews are mustering from midday onwards at the Teign Shanty Festival Information Centre, venue to be confirmed.

Saturday performances begin at 1pm and run till 11pm throughout Teignmouth and Shaldon and on Sunday from 1pm till 6pm.
