'Arnside Maritime Singing Festival' -  2pm-10.15pm at The Old Customs House, Promenade, Arnside

A festival of sea shanty and maritime singing in aid of the RNLI. There will be performers singing in the Sailing Club from 2pm to 10.15pm. Subject to the weather there will be shanty singing on the Promenade (slipway by the Albion) and the Pier from 2pm to 5.45pm.

Sea Shanties were originally sung by sailors on tall ships when setting sails, heaving on ropes or pulling up the anchor to coordinate actions. They tend to use a call and response format with one sailor singing the first line followed by a refrain by the rest of the crew making them catchy and easy to remember. Well known shanties include "Blow the Man Down" a halyard shanty sung used when pulling up the sails, "Blood Red Roses" about rounding Cape Horn in a whaling ship and "What shall we do with the Drunken Sailor".

Shanty Crews performing include Lytham St Annes, Sunderland Point, Mizzen Crew from Morecambe and All@Sea from Cumbria. Individual acts include Tom Perry, Bill Pook, Kath Reade, Lawrence Hoy and Loc Top. All outstanding traditional song performers.
