Pirates Weekend Plymouth
Ahoy there me hearties! Get ready for a swashbuckling day of fun enjoying the best of the high seas in Britain’s Ocean City as this award-winning event returns for another year. Enjoy an adventure-filled day out for the whole family as you wander the streets of the Barbican and Sutton Harbour.
Two tall ships, The Phoenix and Grayhound, will be docked in Sutton Harbour for you to hop aboard and hoist the main sail! Watch out for arch-enemies Jonty Depp and Captain Barbossa roaming the streets, meet the magical Madame Galleon and be enchanted by Melody the Mermaid.

There’s plenty more entertainment too, with puppeteers, stilt walkers, storytellers, displays and a programme of shanty bands to enjoy. Children will love the Giant Octopus soft play on The Parade, or getting creative with arts and crafts activities.
Plymouth Pirate Weekend is a two-day swashbuckling extravaganza when the historic maritime city pays homage to the pirate legend with a non-stop weekend of family-friendly entertainments hosted in Sutton Harbour and the adjacent Barbican area.
As the city’s historic waterfront quarter, Sutton Harbour provides the perfect backdrop to the hugely popular annual event every spring, and pirates swarm across the cobbled quayside with two days of re-enactment displays, sword fighting demonstrations, fairground rides, interactive workshops, treasure hunts, visits from tall ships, fancy dress competitions and much, much more.
Dress up as a pirate and spend some time enjoying the fantastic atmosphere on the harbourside – and don’t forget to look out for Cap’n Jack Sparrow, who never misses the chance to meet visitors.
