SHANTYMEN IN A SHARING MOOD

Re Making Waves Again.

I write to say a big thank you to the great Norfolk public who supported our gig on Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre Sunday night 6th November 2016. The weather, although appalling, confirmed that our show entitled Making Waves Again hit the right note and typified the unpredictability of the North Sea.  The show was inspired by our admiration for the work of the RNLI and the Lifeboat Crews and their support staff who monitor this often challenging maritime regime.

However, despite the weather and with the help of our remarkable partner for the evening Mr Keith Skipper, the show, which was a sell-out, raised over £2,800 which we donated to the Sheringham & Cromer Lifeboats.

Finally you will be pleased to know that Keith, a long time Cromer resident, ensured that we Shannocks had safe passage through the town, but we hope in future to have earned the right to do so.

We now look forward to developing another end of Year show with Keith at the Pier Pavilion Theatre at the end of 2017.
