What to expect

Get your Jolly Rogers at the ready! The award-winning Plymouth Pirates Weekend returns to the waterfront in May, offering a swashbuckling weekend of free fun for all the family to enjoy. 

Organised by the Plymouth Waterfront Partnership Business Improvement District, Pirates Weekend Plymouth takes place on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 May across the Barbican and Sutton Harbour.

Visitors can expect 2 days packed full of entertainment and activities, including a pirate trail, storytellers, puppet shows, arts and crafts activities, street entertainment and much more.

Hop aboard the 2 tall ships that will be docked in Quay Square, Sutton Harbour and imagine you’re sailing the high seas. 

New for this year are aerobatic workshops in the Barbican Theatre. To join the beginner’s workshops you’ll need to sign up for a place on the day.

Pirates Weekend Plymouth also has a super fun Pirate Taxi Show (on Sunday only) and an exciting line-up of sea shanty bands playing throughout the weekend.
