Sea Shanty Group Make Welcome Return to Tickenham.

Following their much-applauded visit last year, Bristol’s longest-serving sea shanty group, The Harry Browns, make a welcome return to Tickenham Church on Friday, March 15th.

They will be giving us songs from the sea from their expansive repertoire including contemporary and self-penned numbers.

Formed in the 1980s, they have toured Europe and sung at major festivals at home and abroad. So come along at 7.30 pm and have a fun evening in our lovely Church.

Tickets at £10 including refreshments on 07740 085015 or www.ticketsource.co.uk.
