The Antrim Coast Half Marathon After Party will be held on 29th August 2021 – 8PM to 12PM (doors open 7PM).



Cornwall’s best-known musical export Fisherman’s Friends emerge from lockdown, to confirm they will be headlining the prestigious World Athletics Label Series, Antrim Coast Half Marathon After Party in 2021. The outdoor event will be held at the Larne Market Yard on Sunday 29th August (map at the bottom of this page).

A decade ago, The Fisherman’s Friends were persuaded to sign the million-pound record deal that saw their album ‘Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friend’s’ go Gold as they became the first ever traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album.

Thanks to the 2019 British romantic comedy movie, the story of the original Cornish ‘buoy band’ is known around the world, taking over $10 million at the box office which saw the boys perform at the 2019 Cannes film festival.

Since then they’ve sang at Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, played Glastonbury festival, and been honoured with the Good Tradition Award at the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. They’ve also been the subject of an ITV documentary, released the hit albums One and All (2013), Proper Job (2015) and Sole Mates (2018) and continued play to tens of thousands of fans at home and abroad.

A spokesman for the band said the boys are delighted to be finally touring again and can’t wait to play the stunning open air location in Larne, County Antrim.

Fisherman’s Friends will be playing from 8:30PM to 10PM.

With World Athletics sending a delegate to the Antrim Coast half Marathon, and big announcements in the elite race still to come over the coming months, the event finale will hopefully make up for the restrictions put in place during the global pandemic in 2020.

We all can finish the 2021 Event with a true celebration of sport and the local area.
