Canning Dock, L3 4 Liverpool
Shanties on the Steamer (Acton Bridge – Acton Bridge) cruise duration approx. 4 – 4.5 hours.
3rd June & 1st July 2018
With river water in their veins, expect incredible ship-shape ballads and mellifluous harmonies as we sail from Acton Bridge at 1200 hrs and head straight for the picturesque Dutton Locks, after which we wind our way through some of the Weaver Navigations most stunning scenery to pass through the recently refurbished Sutton Weaver Swing Bridge to Marsh Lock where we will turn and make our way back to Acton Bridge. So ‘batten down the hatches’ because the PORT SUNLIGHT SEA DOGS will continue a right rum tradition of singing shanties and songs of river and sea, songs of sailors and whalers, heroes and villains. PORT SUNLIGHT SEA DOGS’ roots are steeped in folk and Celtic traditions, Merseybeat, Skiffle, even opera!.. Come join in the stormy choruses, and celebrate our past (and future) maritime history with a bit of a rant and a bit of a roar!
