Pirates will once again be taking over the Maritime Museum for five days of swashbuckling fun next week, Monday 20 – Friday 24 February. The popular half-term event invites budding buccaneers of all ages to meet the ‘real’ maritime pirates as they show off their sword fighting skills. Discover the history of piracy and learn about their ships, weapons, flags and treasure. Our pirates will be on hand throughout the week to enthrall you with their tales of piracy.
Fancy dress, eye patches, parrots and other pirate attire is actively encouraged as children join in games, crafts, and action activities. Captain Jack Sparrow will of course be returning, providing plenty of entertainment for all ages – especially the Mums!. Admission is free for Jersey Heritage members and children under 6 years old. Non-members admission £9.80 adults, £8.65 seniors, £6.15 6-16 year olds and £28.70 family ticket (2 adults and 2 children).
Jonathan Heaney, Managing Partner of Walkers who sponsor this family event says:” Walkers law firm is delighted to be partnering Jersey Heritage in relation to this wonderful community event. The Pirates event is one of the highlights of the year for families and is both fun and educational.

Nicola Lucas, Community Events Curator said ‘We love to join forces with Captain Sparrow and his crew to host this unforgettable pirate experience. The Jersey Heritage team works hard to offer families exciting ways to engage with the Island’s heritage sites, so whether half-term brings sunshine or drizzle, there’s guaranteed fun for all the family.’
