A TALL sailing ship is to grace the Port of Barrow today.

La Malouline will arrive at 10am, visiting the town to help promote a potential tall ships event next year.

The Festival of Sail and Inspiration Festival is being planned for next August in Barrow by residents and businesses across the community.

The event will bring people within the community together to celebrate the area's nautical heritage and future.

Business bosses who want to sponsor the event next year have been urged to contact office@somethingleisure.co.uk.
