Ahoy there ship mates, the pirates are taking over HMS Mill Gate on Tuesday 30 May for a packed day of swashbuckling fun from 11am to 3pm.
The shopping centre has organised the event to celebrate the latest in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Salazar’s Revenge.
The pirates land ashore at 11am when children can meet and take a selfie with one of the UK’s leading Captain Jack Sparrow lookalikes. He will be seeking apprentice pirates to join his crew.
Comedy duo The Pirates of Men’s Pants will anchor their trusty ship outside TJ Hughes to perform three energetic shows. The two dashing, sea shanty-singing pirates will entertain youngsters with their madcap pirate comedy and tricks.
At the end of each show Captain Jack will judge the best dressed young pirates. He will also give contestants a special (temporary) tattoo.
And there will also be a free pirate themed craft workshop for children at the event.
