Hooks and Crookes are organising a shanty festival (the Dunmore East Nimmo 200 Seafaring Festival of Music & Song) to celebrate the life and times of Alexander Nimmo, the remarkable Scottish engineer responsible for designing and building the Harbour and the Lighthouse at Dunmore East. There will be singing on the stages, in the village, on the quayside and in the cafés and restaurants by day and again in the local hostelries at night. This shanty event is been run in conjunction with the Dunmore East Harbour Festival, a fun-filled jamboree of events based around the iconic Lighthouse down in the Harbour at Dunmore East. There will be various activities over the two days with marquees, stages including pop up stages, food stalls, well-being activities, exhibitions, walks etc, to name but a few of the exciting events that are promised in Mid-May.
