Ahoy Landlubbers, the stage is all set for our BRAND NEW event, the Mermaid and Pirate Festival!

We’ve built a pirate ship stage for the kids to watch the story telling and sing along shows at periods throughout the day!

Your children could dress up as Long John Silver, Blackbeard or the famous Flame Haired Pirate Anne Bonny who terrorised the seas around the Bahamas in the 1650’s – The golden age of piracy.

Or if mermaids are more your thing, then why not dress up as Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid who lives forever in the beautiful statue in Copenhagen or one of the deadly sirens from Homers Odyssey, who bewitched sailors with their beautiful songs, so they’d crash their ships onto the rocks.
