Plymouth Pirate Weekend
Tel: 01752 306330
Following the huge success of 2015, the award winning Plymouth Pirate Weekend returns on 14 and 15 May 2016 for a family fun packed weekend in The Barbican and Sutton Harbour. Funded by Waterfront businesses through Plymouth Waterfront Partnership.
Come and see our very own Jonty Depp who will be lurking the cobbled streets and go aboard our real Pirate Ship for free. Take part in our Pirate Trail and see if you can uncover Cap ‘n’ Jack’s hidden clues!
Test your pirate skills at our very own Pirate Swashbuckling School or if you prefer, you can enrol in our popular Mermaid School where you can meet a real life Mermaid.
On Sunday come and see a shipwrecked pirate that has washed ashore with a real whale. You will be able to go inside the whale to hear of tales of treasure, mermaids and pirates! Don’t worry The National Marine Aquarium will be there to make sure the whale returns to the ocean!
The National Marine Aquarium will also have other whale based activities based throughout the weekend. They will have an information board with lots of interesting facts about British marine mammals, a game to let people find out how blubber works (and hopefully how effective!), and lastly a sand pit where people can make pledges to help the oceans by making origami whales!!
If anyone is unfamiliar with Plymouth or Pirate Days they can help steer your ship in the right direction. Contact them here
