About Festival Of The Sea at Barry Island
Annual shanty festivals are held all around the UK with the exception of Wales.
These free festivals are held for the enjoyment of locals and tourists benefiting the local community and hospitality businesses whilst fundraising for local charities.
To date we have 31 shanty bands attending from all around the UK. Our aim is 40. Each band will be performing at mainly 8 venues around Barry.
Event takes place in May and June
