Arrr you ready for Town Centre Pirates FEST?
Wed 26 April 2017

Ahoy! Batten down the hatches as Swindon Town Centre will be buzzing with free entertainment and activities for all the family to enjoy – inspired by all things Pirates.

From Friday 2nd through to Sunday 4th June 2017 the town centre will host a Pirate Fest spectacular to coincide with the launch of the Pirates of the Caribbean new film ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’ which opens in cinemas at the end of May 2017.

There will be an abundance of free activities designed especially for families. Wharf Green will be transformed into Captain Hook’s Pirate Ship Zone, featuring a live music and dance, children’s entertainment, competitions and prizes. Activities will include apple bobbing, Pirate limbo, funfair rides and free face painting and lots more! 

Visitors will also be able to take advantage of lunchtime offers from town centre businesses and take part in a hunt for golden treasure in our Pirate treasure hunt. Plus, there will be opportunities to meet all your favourite Peter Pan characters across the town centre.

The Pirates event, which is taking place during school half-term, is the result of partnership working between The Brunel Centre, inSwindon BID Company, The Parade and Regent Circus.
