Plymouth Pirate Weekend 2018

The award winning Plymouth Pirate Weekend returns in May for a family fun packed weekend in The Barbican and Sutton Harbour.

Plymouth Pirate Weekend


Head to the waterfront for a swashbuckling day of fun on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 May. This award-winning family event returns to Plymouth’s waterfront and promises to give you a great adventure-filled day out.

Hop aboard the two tall ships that will be docked in Sutton Harbour and imagine you’re sailing the high seas. Back on dry land, you can meet Plymouth’s very own Captain Jack Sparrow, Jonty Depp, and his evil adversary Captain Barbosa, or settle down for story-time with Melody the mermaid.

To keep everyone entertained, sea shanty bands will fill the streets with song while puppeteers captivate adults and children alike, and younger children can let off steam in the Giant Octopus soft play activity centre. The ‘Best Dressed Pirate’ competition will also be returning, so get your eyepatches and Jolly Rogers at the ready.
