    Special Event

Old Time Sailors are a world class immersive 17 piece shanty band designed to take the audience back in time through an unforgettable trip to the 19th century. The crew is composed of musicians playing fully unplugged to ensure the most authentic experience. Every member of the audience receives a copy of the Sunday Sailor, a newspaper shaped programme, which includes the lyrics to all the songs (plus personalised postal stamps!), so you can sing along and become a sailor for one epic night.

There will be a well-stocked bar and food available. This will be an exhilarating night not to be missed!
