From the 3rd to the 6th April there will be a whole host of family friendly pirate activities to get stuck into and if that wasn’t enough to excite you, it’s free! The local businesses and most of the town’s people will be dressed to the nines in pirate fancy dress too, so don’t be shy and get involved! Pirate Antics Live music entertainment over the weekend will be provided by the world renowned Celtic pirate band The Dolmen who will play their first show on the Friday night at The Golden Lion and then host The Pirate’s Keep evening at The Wyke Smugglers on the Saturday.
