Bands in the Boatshed

This family-friendly event promises an afternoon of music, food, and fun at the Lifeboat Station boathouse found at the end of Calshot Spit.

A twist on their annual Open Day, Calshot RNLI Lifeboat volunteers have organised an afternoon of live music from local groups and artists. From their very own Calshot Crew Kids' Choir, to classic rock covers from local legends Snake Heart, and everything in between!

Starting at 3pm the musical afternoon will also offer a BBQ and beer tent, stalls and a raffle. Raffle prizes include family tickets to several big-name Hampshire attractions, live performances, a ride in a Ferrari California, and more! Tickets can be purchased at the event.

Bands in the Boatshed is free to attend, with money raised throughout going to Calshot RNLI Lifeboat Station. Parking is available along Calshot Spit, paid for as required.

This is a great event for the local community and an opportunity for them to support their local lifeboat station. The evening will wrap up at 8pm. For further details visit the Calshot RNLI Facebook page @calshotlifeboat.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
