Why See Fishermen's Friends The Musical?
Setting sail this winter!
It's safe to say that no one had a group of Cornish fishermen singing sea shanties down as a dead cert for the UK music and film charts but oh buoy, did they show us! Now you can recount the journey of Fisherman's Friends in this brand new musical that follows their fish-out-of-water adventure from singing in the local community and looking to raise a quid or two, to the main stage at Glastonbury!
Premiering back in August 2021 in Cornwall, it was a box office and audience smash, and will now take to stages across the UK, bringing the voyage of the unlikely bouy band to you in a production full of friendship, warmth, heart and sole.
Opening night: 3 May 2023
