PIRATE CAMP

We can announce Hearts of Oak re-enactment will be bringing along their authentic camp and very loud cannon.

Visit their authentic camp on the Quayside.

YE SCHOOL FOR YE PYRATES

Ye School for Ye Pyrates is run by Ding-Dong-Dan, who tells tales of pirates and gets ‘trainees’ to learn cutlass drill (with foam cutlasses), sing shanties and dance a hornpipe before signing ‘Ye Articles’. This can be found on the Quayside next to Conwy Mussels. It is on a first come first served basis at the following times: 11am, 12 noon & 3pm each day. Each class is limited and lasts 20-30mins. Places can not be booked so please get there early to avoid disappointment.

THE KINGS EXECUTIONER

He is known as the Kings Executioner. He tells tales of crime, punishment, torture and execution. Including stories about evil deeds. He has lots of props to demonstrate these. He also has pirate boarding weapons and talks about these. If you like Horrible histories you’ll enjoy this!

PORT SUNLIGHT SEA DOGS

Port Sunlight Sea Dogs, performers of traditional rants and roars about the seafaring life. When not smuggling and pirating along the River Mersey, John, Arthur, Dennis, John, Mal and Phil sing shanties and songs of the sea. All have been performing in folk clubs, choirs and amateur operatics for many years. Their roots in traditional folk music, Irish music and Liverpool’s proud Maritime, Folk and Merseybeat roots, are all stirred up with a big panful of Scouse humour. They sing sea shanties and other songs of the sea at maritime events and historical venues to celebrate Britain’s maritime history. They are regular performers at the magnificent Merseyside Maritime Museum and at the fantastic Floral Pavilion, New Brighton.

Due to the nature of the event the times above where possible will be kept to but may be subject to change at a moments notice.
