Forthcoming Events

Saturday 17th 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 check out our new friend, Van Oscar Charlie (Clue: It’s a van! That looks like a lifeboat!).


Saturday 8th July

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 be bringing our ‘Beach Buddies’ water safety show. Not to be missed!


Sunday 9th 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 have Van Oscar Charlie with us again, as well as important information on how you can stay safe when you’re out and about on the coast this summer.


Saturday 15th 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 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!


Saturday 29th - Sunday 30th July

Flower Show & Country Fair

Another firm favourite on the RNLI Portishead calendar. We’re still planning what we’ll be doing, but we’ll definitely be there. We were overwhelmed by your support last year and hope that this year’s event will be even better!


Monday 28th August

Cake Sale at the Lifeboat Station

We love bank holidays and we love cake, so we’re combining the two for our summer bank holiday cake sale at the lifeboat station. Whether you like cookies, flapjacks or Victoria sponge, we’ll have something to tickle your fancy. So do come along and say hello. And if you’d like to bake a cake to support the work of our volunteer lifeboat crew, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


Saturday 9th September

RNLI Portishead Open Day

We’re planning a massive lifeboat station open day and we’d love you to be a part of it. There’ll be fun and activities for the whole family. As well as the chance to meet our volunteer crew, check out the lifeboat and learn more about what we do. We’ll share more details as soon as we have them, but do put the date in your diary. It’s going to be huge!
