Pirate Family Fun Day

Set sail for 'Pirate Family Fun Day' on Saturday 6 April 

Calling all landlubbers! Do you dare enter the dastardly dockyard for a pirate fun day so thrilling - Blackbeard himself won't know how to handle it. To celebrate the launch of Horrible Histories Pirates: The Exhibition and Jolly Roger: A Symbol of Terror and Pride, become the master of piracy for a day out like no other.

Grab your treasure map and collect your pirate hat as you slowly transform into the ultimate pirate. Get your very own fantasy wound, a sign of all the battles you have fought. Afterwards, get your face painted from our experts as they take you from plank walker to parrot squawker.

No pirate adventure would be complete without a cutlass in hand. Visit our weapon expert and get your very own balloon sword forged in the fires of Boathouse 5. In between all that hard work, take it easy onboard a pirate play ship as you captain your way to fun. Join the crew on Saturday 6 April as you try and survive pirate court. All activities are included as part of a valid attraction ticket.
