Sue Perkins chairperson of the fundraising group explains: ‘with the help of North Wales Golf Club we are very pleased to repeat the great night we had last year; we are also very grateful to the Shanty Crew who have agreed to perform on the night’.

The 'Lytham St Annes Shanty Crew' are a group of singers of shanties and sea songs happy to raise money for charities especially the RNLI. They sing mostly acapella with traditional working shanties mixing effortlessly with self-penned original material. They have a unique style, and many of their songs are boisterous, but the humour and harmonies are never far away.

Tickets cost £12.50 and includes Chicken in the Basket and Raffle.

For tickets call 0798 9617676 or call at the RNLI Shop St George’s Place, Llandudno
