‘My name is Nigel Price and I am the incoming festival director. When I heard that the festival was to close this year [2017] I just couldn¹t stand to see such a fantastic annual event just disappear without a fight so I offered to do what I could to help it to continue. I promise you all that I will give it my best shot. I also promise to source all supporting businesses from Swanage itself where possible and, if I can¹t I will keep it as local as possible.‘ Held Mid July.

‘The Wareham Whalers have been rocking the boat with our powerful shanties since 2004 ... We sing Shanties as they would have been sung for work on board ship and for the rare moments of recovery down below. We aim to capture the strength of this music and ensure that there is never a dull moment when the Whalers are about! Somebody once made the mistake of spelling our name Wareham Wailers – our Bosun ensured that that would never be repeated. As well as our performances we also run hour long workshops illustrating the history of Shanty singing and showing how the shanties were used…. with real rope!’
