Forthcoming Events

Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th February - 5.30pm to 9pm

Window Wanderland

We’re delighted to be taking part in Portishead’s very first ‘Window Wanderland’ event.


Window Wanderland transforms everyday streets into magical, outdoor galleries, where anything goes and you never know what’s around the next corner.


Come and see our ‘yellow welly’ window display, check out the lifeboat and learn more about what we do.

Saturday 14th April

Join the Ukulele Funhouse Orchestra for an evening of musical entertainment in aid of the RNLI Portishead volunteer lifeboat crew.


In this musical extravaganza, the Home Guard tackle a one-man submarine, whose captain aims to blow up Temple Meads and disrupt the railway. The ‘Dad’s Army’ platoon commandeer the Pill Ferry and are joined in the pursuit by a group of Wrens.

The concert will take place at Somerset Hall and tickets will cost £10. More information, including how to book tickets, will be coming soon…


Saturday 16th June

Portishead Carnival

We’re looking forward to taking part in the carnival again this year. We’re already putting together ideas for the parade and will, of course, be at the showground, too. Come along and meet some of the lifeboat crew, buy RNLI souvenirs and learn about how to stay safe around the coast and on the water.


Saturday 30th June

Portishead Primary School Summer Fair

Now a firm favourite on our calendar, we’ll be back at Portishead Primary School again this year with Stormy Stan and our lifeboat souvenir stall. And we’ll hopefully be bringing our ‘Beach Buddies’ water safety show. Not to be missed!


Sunday 8th July

Portishead Raft Race

We’ll be coming out in force again for the raft race. Come along to meet the lifeboat crew, buy some RNLI souvenirs and learn a bit more about what we do. We’ll also be sharing important information on how you can stay safe when you’re out and about on the coast this summer.


Saturday 14th July

Festival on the Quay

One of our favourite events, we’re delighted to be coming along to the Festival on the Quay again. There’ll be plenty going on, including members of the lifeboat crew, lifeboat souvenirs and (hopefully) the ‘Beach Buddies’ water safety show. And just a few minutes’ walk from the marina, we’ll be running tours of the lifeboat station, too. A great day out for all the family!
