Festival of the Sea sails into Grimsby for another year

The Festival of the Sea sails back into Grimsby on June 22nd to reacquaint the town with its seafaring traditions – and thousands are expected to take part.

Festival of the Sea is a celebration of Grimsby’s relationship with the sea through heritage and culture, whilst also looking to the future. The festival aims to engage, entertain, and inspire residents and visitors, and bring together the community for a day of fun, entertainment, and interactive learning.

North East Lincolnshire Councillor Hayden Dawkins, said: “This Festival will once again provide a true showcase for Grimsby and North East Lincolnshire. It will be packed with family entertainment, and is a perfect way to show how our past, great heritage can be brought into the modern day using the creativity and talent that now exists.”

There has been an overwhelming response to the 2024 event, which has led to an exciting programme of activities, performances, guided walks, installations, and projects.

Swans Events has worked alongside a steering group of local people who are passionate about Grimsby’s history and community spirit to help with programming for the festival for the second year.

Organiser Neoemi Antonelli said:“Festival of the Sea is a celebration of all that makes Grimsby unique. We’re thrilled to have a programme co-curated by local people who know and love this town.”
