Sea Shanty Workshop

Wednesday 31 July 2024

Trinity House

Trinity House has long been connected to Leith's historic whaling industry. On these long voyages seafarers would entertain themselves with crafts, games, and music.

Join traditional Scots singer Joss Cameron and learn about the history of sea shanties before having a go at singing your own seafaring songs! This unique experience includes a whaling-themed tour of Trinity House followed by shanties in our sixteenth century vaults.
