Building upon our desire to continue to improve on the success of the Sea Ilfracombe Maritime Festival, in 2019 we were very proud to present what was undoubtedly our strongest musical line up to date but for 2021 we are looking to surpass this with a fantastic line up of musical acts from all genres, styles & tastes.

And all this for FREE!
