York House Centre and The Cock & Bull Society teamed up to host S.S.Shanty last weekend, which proved a huge success.
The evening of sea-shanties and maritime music was in aid of the RNLI, and a capacity crowd showed out to support the cause.
Music came from 5 Men Not Called Matt and Sloop Groggy Dogs (you see what they’ve done there, don’t you?).
Malcolm Jones performed his shanty on the works of Stony Stratford boat-builder Edward Hayes, and Michele Welborn also took to the stage at the event.
Newly appointed Bard of Stony Stratford Richard Frost took the assembled on a poetic crawl around the town, and the evening raised a fantastic £735.15 for the RNLI and £400 for York House Centre itself.
Well done to all!
