Brixham Pirate Festival 2017

"Arrr!" by Peter DuttonSourceLicense

Pirates, pirates and even more pirates descend on the town of Brixham for Brixham Pirate Festival 2017. Expect plenty of noise, from endless shanties ringing through the town centre right down to cannon fire down in the harbour. All visitors are invited to dress appropriately and for the kids that usually means a fancy dress competition too.

Right in the centre of the event will be Golden Hind, a replica of Sir Francis Drake’s Tudor Galleon which will be open to the public throughout the festival. For those staying late there’ll be no end to the options on offer as entertainment takes over venues across the town in the evenings.

Did You Know? Many of these vessels offer an experience known as ‘Sail Training’, a course in personal and professional development championed by youth organisations, multi-national corporations and even navies from across the world.
