On Friday 19th August, FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS: ONE AND ALL, the highly anticipated sequel to the beloved 2019 uplifting comedy hit, sails into cinemas across the UK and Ireland.
Inspired by the story of Fisherman’s Friends, who rose to fame performing on the harbour in their native Port Isaac in Cornwall, the band are widely credited with starting the revival of interest in shanty-style choral singing, a pop-culture phenomenon in recent years.
FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS: ONE AND ALL charts the next instalment of the Fisherman's Friends amazing and uplifting true‐story. Following the unexpected success of their debut album “No Hopers, Jokers and Rogues” we rejoin the world's oldest ‘buoy band’ a year later struggling to navigate the pressures, pitfalls and temptations of their newfound fame. The film follows the celebrated shanty singers through the highs and lows as lifelong friendships are put to the test and they battle the dreaded ‘curse of the second album’.

New faces in Port Isaac include Richard Harrington as the new band member Morgan, Ramon Tikaram, Joshua McGuire and introducing Irish singer-songwriter Imelda May, in her debut acting role.
Reuniting the original film’s creative team, Meg Leonard and Nick Moorcroft make their directorial debut, directing from their screenplay co-written with Piers Ashworth, with the sequel to the UK box-office smash hit based on the next stage of the sea-shanty singing group’s heart-warming story.
