Pirate Weekend

May 11 - May 12

This fantastic family event takes place all around Sutton Harbour and the Barbican. Established in 2011, it has grown every year. People of all ages set sail for the Barbican where there are a sea of pirates including Plymouth’s very own Jonty Depp! Fancy dress is encouraged and with so many people getting involved it is great fun for all the family.

In previous years, we have seen a whale next to the Boathouse Café where you could go inside and explore. There was face painting, stalls, sea shanty’s, Pirate school, canon firing, Mermaid school and so much more – the event schedule was jam packed from 10am – 4pm on both days with competitions and a fantastic food offer from all of the local restaurants and cafes.

The following information was provided by the organisers of this fantastic event, click here for full details.
