Where: based around the Marina and the Pier with some morris teams performing in the town centre as well as at the Marina.

We have a main stage on the Saturday at the Minerva from 1 till 11.
Singarounds in The Whittington and Cat from Friday evening till Sunday afternoon with the survivors session in the Minerva, Hull Pier, on the Sunday evening.

Maritime concerts on the Syntan stage at the Marina, run Saturday 1 till 5, and Sunday 1 till 4.

Historic ships on display: Syntan (Beverley barge), Phyllis (Humber sloop), Spurn Lightship, Amy Howson (Humber sloop), Comrade (Humber keel), Vulcan (Clyde barge), Pax (historic vessel).

Music sessions will take place in the hold of Amy Howson.
