Ahoy there ship mates, the pirates are landing at Eastgate shopping centre on Friday 25 August for a fun packed day of free swashbuckling fun. Captain Jack Sparrow and his motley crew will jump aboard at 11am. Youngsters will be able to meet Captain Jack between 11am and 3pm. He will be posing for photos on a spectacular throne made of bones – a prop used in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
There will be hilarious walkabouts throughout the day from our comedy duo Swash and Buckle – the Pirates of Northants. The nautical pals will sail around Eastgate on their barnacle covered ship crooning sea shanties and some hits from the 80s too.
Stilt walker Nautical Nancy will be standing tall in her beautiful wave dress and ocean liner headdress looking for the sea with her telescope.
There will even be a free craft workshop for youngsters to make everything an apprentice pirate needs to join Captain Jack’s crew.
