Saturday 11 October 2014 saw the second year of our Sea Shanty train, which encourages those travelling to the Harwich Sea Shanty Festival to let the train take the strain.  

Lots of pirates boarded the train, and fun was had with a treasure hunt, name the pirate and activity packs for the children. The festival feel was enhanced with a sea shanty crew singing during the journey, whilst a story teller with scary stories helped the journey sail by.  With additional interest from customers, this year our motley crew took over the vessel on both the 11:00 and 12:00 departures from Manningtree.

The Sea Shanty Train now promises to be an annual event with its growing popularity and we look forward to seeing the corsairs boarding again next year!
