This ever popular musical festival is a must for all those who love shanties and songs of the sea. The whole of Harwich will be immersed for four days and nights of songs and music. There’s no better way to arrive than aboard sailing barge Centaur, who was built in Harwich 125 years ago. Boarding will be on Tuesday evening for a passage on Wednesday to Harwich. The music starts on Thursday afternoon and runs through to until Sunday night. Centaur will head back to Maldon for a late return on Monday.
