About St Ives
St Ives Shanty Shout started in 2016 with a small handful of groups singing in The Castle Inn. This proved to be very popular and is now an annual event.
Hosted by Bamaluz Bootleggers, the St Ives Shanty Group with sponsorship from local businesses we've had over 20 groups, including Kimber's Men travelling down from Yorkshire, singing at multiple venues in the town.
In 2019 we raised £2353.01 for the Cornish charity Penhaligon’s Friends.
In 2018 we raised £1627.78 towards the Cornwall Air Ambulance - New Heli appeal.
In 2017 we raised £1830 for 2 charities, the RNLI and Children’s Hospice South West.
Due to Covid-19 the 5th Shout has been postponed until 2021.
Can we give a huge thank you to everyone who put money in the buckets.
