Learn about cannons and explosions

A good way to defend yourself centuries ago on a pirate ship would have been through cannon fire. Join our Dockyard Alive team as they demonstrate how to load giant cannon and the techniques used to fire it.

With no ear guards or modern day protections, cannons were often dangerous instruments of war – but packed the punch needed to turn the tide of battle. Now, you can discover how pirates used guns during a confrontation at sea and how they would decide the victor in this interactive workshop inside Horrible Histories: Pirates.

Gun drill workshop is available:

  • 26th, 27th and 28th October (10am – 5pm)
  • 1st and 3rd November (10am – 5pm)
