Rosehill and Whitehaven Harbour Commissioners are proud to present the very first Harbour Fest in July 2022. The festival will feature live promenade performances, music, arts crafts, and lots more, which will illuminate the unique harbour of Whitehaven and celebrate the local creative community. The event will be free and open to all.

As part of the festival, we are delighted to announce the Cumbrian premiere of the magnificent #OutOfTheDeepBlue by Autin Dance Theatre, featuring a world-class 13ft Sea Giant puppet, Eko.

Alongside this, there will be the finale of the brand-new Rosehill-commissioned community project by Cumbrian outdoor theatre company Tiny Wild Fox, and the finest up-and-coming music acts from across the region courtesy of oh my days promotions.

Expect harbour-related themes, fabulous sounds, fantastic performances, and free family fun.
