Fisherman's Friends 2 the film is coming to Cornwall

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 6:33am 13th March 2020.

It has been announced that a new Fisherman's Friends film is coming to Cornwall.

Filming for the sequel will start in the Duchy this summer.

The first film told the story of how of a group of fishermen and workers from Port Isaac signed a million pound record deal 10 years ago.

Their success led to a top 10 album and performances in front of the Queen and on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury.

No information has been revealed about what will happen in Fisherman's Friends 2 but it is due out in cinemas in March 2021.

Speaking at the time of the first film's release, group member Jon Cleave said:

"It's been a long old voyage. It's been good fun though, we've had some terrific times, all very unexpected.

"When we first got spotted and discovered, even though we weren't lost, it was a bit of an odd moment.

"We were asked if we'd like to make a record and we sort of reluctantly said 'alright then' and it all went on from there.

"In the next couple of years we were on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury and went on and did all these other things...it's been amazing."

Despite the group's success all the men have kept their day jobs - from fishermen to builders.

Member Jeremy Brown says maintaining a connection to the village of Port Isaac is crucial:

"None of us wanted to escape our jobs or Port Isaac and the first tour they organised was 21 dates and we just looked at each other and thought 'we don't want to be away for 21 nights!'.

"So we only do three or four days at a time and then we come back to Port Isaac and that suits us really well."
