Thread Name: The Rise and Fall of Shanty Festivals
Subject: RE: The Rise and Fall of Shanty Festivals
In the early days of the Swansea Festival, there was a school shanty group called The "Nipper Jacks" who proved to be a popular attraction for the festival.
Steve,
It's great to hear that Hull Shanty Festival has been rescued!
Here's hoping that the Swansea Festival will have similar success next year?
