The Helm

Come join us at The Helm, the steering wheel of the festival home and heart of Shore Leave 2022!

Come and enjoy a sunset drink at the festival bar, take in the sounds of local musicians, take part in a workshop with local artists, or just sit back and enjoy the view overlooking the Foreshore.

The Helm is open daily throughout Shore Leave with detailed programming to be revealed in the coming weeks to provide a vibrant central meeting place for visitors and local alike.

Our helpful Shore Leave crew will be on hand to answer any questions, provide programs, maps and tickets. Come down to The Helm!
