Why go and see it?

With a combined age of 401 (and three-quarters), the band has been meeting on the Platt on the harbour in their native Port Isaac for 30 years!

Finding worldwide fame through the eponymous 2019 movie, Fisherman's Friends made their name by being the first traditional folk act to create a UK top ten album. Since then they’ve performed at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and played Glastonbury festival, as well as having been the subject of an ITV documentary.

Fisherman's Friends

The Fisherman's Friends band have also released the hit albums One and All (2013), Proper Job (2015) and Sole Mates (2018) and continued to play to tens of thousands of fans both at home and abroad. Throughout lockdown in the UK the group also kept fans entertained by posting weekly songs and poems on their YouTube series Mares Tales & Mackerel Scales.

The Fisherman’s Friends are: lobster fisherman Jeremy Brown; writer/ shopkeeper Jon Cleave; smallholder and engineer John ‘Lefty’ Lethbridge; builder John McDonnell (a Yorkshireman who visited Port Isaac more than 30 years ago and never left); Padstow fisherman Jason Nicholas; film maker Toby Lobb and the new boy, former ambulance driver Pete Hicks.

And now we can’t wait to show the rest of the country what they’ve been missing – singing live is in our blood, almost as much as the sea,” says extravagantly moustachioed MC and bass man Jon Cleave.

There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
