Fisherman’s Friends: The Musical

The true story of the Cornish chart topping Buoyband.

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


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.


This brand new musical has a book by Amanda Whittington and direction by James Grieve. It reopened the historic Hall For Cornwall in 2021, prior to a major UK and Canadian tour in 2022/3. The production will return in the near future.



A joyful, heart-warming musical!
