Fisherman's Friends, The Oggymen, Falmouth Shout, Culdrose Military Wives, Nankersey Male Choir and Oll An Gwella were just some of the names that performed.

Singing took place across the weekend at more than 20 venues throughout Falmouth – including pubs, cafes, hotels and shops.

Organisers expected to exceed the 60,000 people who attended last year's festival, which raises funds for the RNLI.
