Old Time Sailors

The Old Time Sailors return!

Ahoy there! You are invited to board the Sailorette and join the plentiful crew, 'The Old Time Sailors', for a night of footstomping, dancing and singing!

You will be sailing back to the 19th century for an immersive experience of traditional seafaring music performed in a way you have never seen before.

The Motley Crew and their plethora of traditional and eclectic instruments will take you back to the time of clashing tankards, and drunken debauchery. Sing and dance along like a drunken sailor as the band perform centuries old folk and shanty songs.
