Pirate Weekend

Opening Times

16/05/2015 - 17/05/2015

* 10am-4pm

Following the huge success of 2014, which saw Pirate Weekend receive a Visit Devon Tourism Award,the event returns on 16 and 17 May for a family fun packed weekend in The Barbican and Sutton Harbour.

The Pirates of St Piran will be storming The Phoenix tall ship where it will be berthed in Sutton Harbour, inviting families on board to get a taste of life as a pirate at their own risk!

The streets will be taken over by the famous Jonty Depp, as well as the tallest stilt walking pirates you will ever see, the YO HO HO Pirate Puppet Show and the mystical Melody Mermaid.

With a chance to dig for treasure, make pirate outfits and enroll in mermaid school, there is plenty to do to keep the little ones busy for the whole weekend. Competitions for the whole family will be held over the weekend for the best Pirate Fancy Dress, a winching competition and an opportunity to complete a Treasure Trail through the Barbican. Treasure maps will be available in the Barbican Tourist Information Centre across the weekend.
