The UK's Berthon Lymington Marina claims to be blazing a path for the future of Live Music during the pandemic.

The third and final (for 2020!) Music On The Marina was held on Sunday 30th August at Berthon Lymington Marina, to the largest audience yet. With live music events being cancelled throughout the world, Berthon say it was delighted to do their bit for the entertainment industry and bring live music back to a very appreciative audience.

Enjoying beautiful weather and the most exquisite sunset of August, you would have been forgiven for thinking you were in the Mediterranean. As the band started their set, picnics, canapés and champagne were indulged in - boat owners making excellent use of their cockpits and flybridges. With the drinks flowing and hits from the '70s, '80s and '00s playing out across the marina, the party atmosphere soon saw socially distanced dancing on pontoons and aboard vessels.

Managing Director Brian May commented "Berthon Lymington Marina is trailblazing the way for socially distanced events within the Marine industry. We are the first marina in the UK (possibly worldwide) to offer such an event to our Berth Holders, and we are delighted that our three musical evenings have been so well received." Brian continues "It is evident from the feedback we have received that after such a turbulent year people have delighted in letting their hair down and enjoyed hearing live music again, and we feel privileged that we have been able to provide an outlet for this."

Berthon Lymington Marina is looking forward to next year and how this event can be developed.  Berthon Boat Co Ltd is a family-run international marine business based on the picturesque banks of Lymington River.
