Roll on down to The End bar for the Salty Sirens' first ever SHANTY GALA, featuring a ship load of musical guests in sailabration of the year that was 2023.
Get yer sea legs ready for a night of sea shanties, she shanties, sea songs and the odd land shant too. Sapphic sailors (Kristy Capstanfield and Elyse Fishpatrick) and their ragtag crew will lead you on a musical journey through traditional and modern nautical folk song, tales of shipwork, daring adventure, defiance and debauchery. With more than 10 special guests, it will be heaving, it will be fast, it will be loose, and it will be GAY!

"Don't go if you don't like fun!"
"You rocked my boat and my world!"
"These gigs are magical. They make you forget to be self conscious, that most of the people in the room are supposed to be strangers, and that you have work tomorrow. They are the musical equivalent of climbing trees and doing cartwheels."
"BEST EVENING OF THE MONTH. THANK YOU 4 MY LIFE"
"A rollicking good night with saucy shenanigans and uproar galore! Hoist the sails and splice the main brace for the next Shanty Club as fast as yer oars can paddle! Arr!"
"We may never get the chance to sail the seas in a pirate ship, but a night at the Shanty Club with the Salty Sirens might be as close as it gets"
•Is this a full band gig featuring The Irate Pirates?
No. This will be largely a trio gig, featuring a series of guest musicians, one at a time, followed by a short choir performance and rounded off with some dizzying tunes.
•Can I buy a ticket on the door?
No guarantee. Only if we don't sell out!
•Does The End sell food?
They don't but you can bring in food from elsewhere.
•I don't like singing in public. Will I have a good time?
Oh aye! Shanty Club will have ye singin' more gaily than ye thought ye knew how.
•Will you sign my chest?
Only if you ask nicely.
