Great news - after many months of pressure and pleading the funding has been made available for a Shanty Festival in Liverpool in 2008, 18-21 July when the Tall Ships race comes to town. Huge thanks to everyone who helped - it's clear that the authorities were persuaded by the worldwide flood of support and outrage.
We'll set up a new website with festival details and post the web address here in due course.

Great stuff. Get your blue sweaters out and air them, they'll be needed after all.

Great news indeed!.. Will check my diary and see it can be fitted in. Well done to all who were pushing for something relevant to Liverpool's maritime history in 2008...

Great news indeed!

Hopefully this means that Liverpool's not the European City of Cultural Desert?
