Fisherman’s Friends The Musical – 11-22 April 2023


A glorious feel-good musical – the story of the original Cornish buoy band

The true story of the Cornish chart topping buoy band.

Based on the true story of the chart-topping Cornish singing sensations and their hit 2019 movie, Cornwall Playhouse Productions’ Fisherman’s Friends: The Musical is a feel-good voyage about friendship, community and music which smashed box office records at Hall for Cornwall during the theatre’s 2021 reopening.

When a group of Cornish fishermen came together to sing the traditional working songs they’d sung for generations, nobody, least of all the fishermen, expected the story to end on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.  They are spotted by a fish-out-of-water music manager on a trip from London, who must learn that there is more to life than selling your sole for fifteen minutes of fame.
