Avast Landlubbers!

The Albert Dock will be ablaze this weekend with the Pirate Festival Saturday and Sunday,June 9-10th.

If this weekend doesn’t get you speaking like a pirate and hopping on one leg to the nearest parrot shop, nothing will.

Watch the action unfold from the quayside as Privateer ships Zebu and Ruth do battle with Pirate ship Vilma,displaying dramatic sailing action in the Dock. A tale unfolds before your eyes, awash with treasure, action and adventure as armed with cannons, muskets and cuttless, they act out a tale of the Kings Navy Pirate Hunters in a live action battle that doesn’t short change us in the fighting. This is good, fun family entertainment.

It’s all in the open air, so best take sou’westers and a flask of grog to get you in the mood as a fair wind will billow you along with all the drama.

Events include: Musket salutes…Cannon Displays…Meet Captain Hook at the Pumphouse….and the Childrens Parade. A fantastic day out!
