The Wellington Wailers are a sea shanty group based in Shoreham-by-Sea in West Sussex. They proudly take their name from the wonderful ‘Duke of Wellington’ pub, Brighton Road, Shoreham-by-Sea.

They have been featured on BBC Radio 2 ‘The Folk Show’ with Mark Radlcliffe. They have also been heard on Radio stations as far away as New Zealand! They were also seen singing on BBC1 TV, whilst performing at Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival. They have recently broacasted live on BBC Radio Sussex and Surrey from their Brighton Studio.
