SHIVER ME TIMBERS! National Marine Aquarium Sponsors Tall Ship for Plymouth's Pirate Weekend
Saturday 13 - Sunday 14 April 2017
May 11, 2017
The National Marine Aquarium (NMA) will be hoisting the Jolly Roger over the Tall Ship Johanna Lucretia this year as a sponsor of the family favourite Pirate Weekend.
The event promises two days of swashbuckling action as salty sea dogs and land lubbers get together in Plymouth for a host of great entertainment.
This year thousands are expected to don pirate fancy dress and enjoy a boat load of free events, including great music, the chance to meet the scurvy crew of a Pirate Ship and live canon and musket firing. Businesses all across the Plymouth Waterfront get involved and this year the NMA will be sponsoring the beautiful Tall Ship the Johanna Lucretia, which will be docked in Sutton Harbour on Quay Square and is free for all to go aboard.
NMA staff – all dressed as pirates - will also be joining in the fun with a host of events and competitions at the aquarium, including pirate hat crafting, a special display of whale artefacts, a pirate trail and games for the whole family.
