Maritime Heritage Festival and Flotilla July 29 & 30 Wells-next-the-Sea


Jointly with Curlew Coastal Charters, who skipper trips afloat on Lucy Lavers, we are planning our annual Maritime Heritage Festival and Flotilla spectacle on July 29 and 30.

We are inviting heritage locally built and used wooden working boats and hope to have well over twenty on display on Tugboat Quay (Saturday 29 10-6 and Sunday 30 July 10-4). They will process in a Flotilla to the harbour mouth and back (Flotilla spectacle 3 - 4pm Saturday 29 July).This will take place at Tugboat Yard, East Quay, Wells-next-the-Sea NR231LD.

On Tugboat Green on both days the histories of all the boats will be displayed.  For your further enjoyment there will also be Maritime Heritage displays, merchandise, children’s fun and activities, demonstrations of whelk pot repairs, beer supplied by Moongazer Ales, (soft drinks also available), street food stalls including Randy’s Sea food and a fresh local Samphire stall and more!
Music on Saturday 29 July  will be provided by the Fried Pirates and then the Blakeney Old Wild Rovers and on Sunday 30 July by Plug (Raz) Emery and then Anto Morra. We very much hope to see you there for a great weekend out!

More details to come! watch this space!
