Forthcoming Events

Saturday 5th May

Mayday Street Collection

As part of the RNLI’s national ‘Mayday’ campaign, we’ll be out and about in the High Street collecting funds, giving out stickers and flags, and answering your questions about the RNLI and our volunteer lifeboat crew.


If you’d like to learn more about our Mayday campaign and how you can help to support your local RNLI lifeboat station, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


Friday 17th May

Life on the Royal Yacht: A talk and fish supper

Join us for an evening of nautical excitement as Tony ‘Nobby’ Noble tells all about his life as a crew member on the Royal Yacht Britannia.


The event takes place at Clarence House, with doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Tickets are £15 each and include a fish and chip supper. And the bar will be open. There will also be a mini-auction and a raffle, all in aid of RNLI Portishead.

Tickets are available from the lifeboat station shop. But they’re selling fast, so get yours while you still can.


Sunday 20th May

Sainsbury’s Collection

We’ll be in-store at Sainsbury’s Portishead from 10am to 4pm, raising funds to support our volunteer lifeboat crew. And we’ll have a plentiful supply of stickers, flags and fun lifeboat facts. So please do stop and say hello while you do your shopping.


Friday 1st June

Cycle Ride: 109 for the RNLI

Our very own lifeboat press officer, Helen Lazenby, will be cycling with a group of friends from our lifeboat station in Portishead to the national RNLI headquarters in Poole, to raise money to support our volunteer lifeboat crew.


If you’d like to sponsor Helen and her friends, you can do so via their Justgiving page at


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!
