Thread Name: The Rise and Fall of Shanty Festivals
Subject: The Rise and Fall of Shanty Festivals
It was heartening to see some new shanty festivals on the 2011 festivals programme.
Unfortunately, some of the old favourites have been scuppered through the lack of financial support.
Such is the case of "Sea Swansea Festival" which was planned for the 13th-14th August 2011.
But there is a faint hope that it will be back next year?

We'd love to have your views on the current situation?
