Shiver Me Timbers! It’s time to hunt for doubloons and walk the plank at the Peninsular Pyrates Family Festival.
Landguard Fort at Felixstowe is the venue and the event is on Saturday, September 22, and Sunday, September 23, both days from 10am to 4pm.
Four re-enactment societies will be coming together in the not-for-profit event to raise money for East Anglia Children’s Hospice and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People – with lots of pirate-themed fun plus a children’s treasure trail, a chance to learn about life in the golden age of pirates, dress up as your favourite buccaneer, watch military and pirate skirmishes, drill displays and musket firing.
It’s chance to see life portrayed over the 16th to 19th centuries and experience close-up performances by the cast and crew.
It will bring together elements of the English Civil War Society, The Sealed Knot. CHES and the pirate community and there will be plenty of participation and involvement for those attending.
There will be musket fire and loud noises, so no dogs are allowed and babies/young children will need ear protection.
Templar Taverns will be selling quality fruit wines, meads and ales and an authentic pub will be open tand people are asked to dress accordingly. Who will you support ... crown or pirate ?
Admission is £7.50 for adults, concessions £6.50, children £3.
