It was “All Hands on Deck” for our Pirate weekend while we dressed up, walked the plank, fished in a barrel, hunted down the treasure, tied ourselves in knots and all this while ‘Deeps’ the Giant Diver Puppet patrolled around the museum on the look out for scallywags –The Azziza Egyptian Dancers trapped him in the end.

As if that wasn’t enough, The Cheerful Ladies also entertained us with cheerleading routines and the Rocks ‘n’ Groynes Barbershop Singers lifted our spirits with their songs and shanties.

A magnificent run ashore for every pirate young and old. Look out for freshly-trained little cutlass-wielding nippers about town!
